Meet Brook, Eliza, and Bucky, just a few of the huge hearts behind the Hope Arbor Respite Care Program in Savannah, GA. What do they do? Why do they do it? How does it impact the lives of all participants and volunteers? This program is life-changing and so very impactful….and it is replicable! If you or someone you know is going through memory care or if you’re looking to “age gracefully,” this is the episode for you!
