Our Club Directors draw on years of education and music training in the development of stimulating planned activities. Our volunteers provide companionship and emotional support on a one-to-one basis.
We are fortunate to have experienced and devoted Program Directors, (these are the activity leaders for our “Club” daily activities and client care).
Anna Potts is our Program Director for the Wednesday group at the club. She has studied art in Italy and Massachusetts College of Art in Boston.
Art has been her passion and an integral element for spiritual transcendence. Art is an all encompassing vehicle for our club members to embrace self-expression, introspection and tranquility.
Alongside her creativity comes lifelong experience, compassion and most of all laughter.
She has been affiliated with Respite Care since 2008 when her mother attended the Club.
Pam Fortin has become a staple providing wonderful program activities; her singing, crafts and never ending warmth and love of her profession shines thru, every day.
Pam has a wonderful sense of humor, loads of hugs and finds her new puppy "Benny" a challenge and is working for the day Benny can come to The Club for hugs and pats
Cathy has over 30 years experience working with seniors – in direct companion care and as the previous owner of a long time elder assistance service in the Brunswick area.
She is skilled at evaluating and supporting individual needs. Fascinated with people, she is able to connect positively and relate to people where ever they are on their journey.
Her goal at Brunswick Area Respite is to provide a nurturing, safe environment with engaging and stimulating activities which will result in a positive experience for each member of the “Club”.
Cathy’s hobbies are baking, gardening and hiking.
Brunswick Area Respite Care, established in 1989, is a non-profit, volunteer based, adult day service dedicated to providing supportive care to individuals and families facing the disabilities of aging.
