The volunteers provide friendly visiting, play cards or board games, help the person with hobbies, and provide respite to the family caregivers. For additional information, see the website at www.respitevolunteers.org or the Respite Volunteer Facebook page, call (989) 725-1127 or stop by the office at the historic brick home east of Memorial Healthcare, 710 W.
