Community Engagement Center (CEC)

Respite Plus Engaging Programs

The CEC is an innovative center to provide respite, education, activities, and community engagement for people and families in caregiving situations. Through the CEC, your loved one will enjoy engaging programming while you have respite from caregiving work. Activities will include music, arts, memory activities, games, puzzles, movement, and a variety of intergenerational projects. You will also be able to access training, resources, peer support, massage, and other supports.

The CEC is a joint program of LifePath and The Care Collaborative.
