A small news item last week told us that the Wenatchee Adult Respite Day Care Center has closed after 28 years of community service. The center at Grace Lutheran Church cared for adults suffering from various inflictions of aging, including dementia and Parkinson’s and other disabilities, allowing their caregivers free time for rest and errands while knowing their loved ones were safe.

The closing was not unexpected. Fewer people used the service because alternatives were available. Fewer people volunteered to help. Finances were tight.
