Help for Those in Need

Veranda Ministries in Gallatin, Tenn., has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for the senior adult population and helping families address the needs of their loved ones affected by Alzheimer's Disease or other debilitating medical issues.

The Veranda, a primary outreach of Veranda Ministries, provides a time of nurturing respite care to allow family caregivers much needed time for themselves. The Veranda is an activity-based program that operates Tuesday through Thursday to engage its clients in a safe, supporting and caring environment. The organization's services for families also include a monthly support group for caregivers and a semi-annual caregiver conference. The conference helps family members and other caregivers cope with the physical and emotional toll of a stressful life situation.

The number of clients in The Veranda's respite program has doubled since its 2012 launch. A nominal fee is charged per day. If a client's financial situation prevents them from paying, they will not be turned away.

The program is led by Mary Anne Oglesby-Sutherly, who is paid a small salary as director, and a volunteer staff. The volunteers have logged more than 12,000 hours since the program's early beginnings. 

No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We devote the time and energy necessary to help families and caregivers. As the number of families affected by Alzheimer's and dementia continues to grow each day, programs like Veranda Ministries are in critical need. Many families cannot place their loved ones in care facilities on a full-time basis, so they rely on organizations like Veranda Ministries to help. 

Please make a gift to Veranda Ministries to support The Veranda and its service to families. Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Our Veranda families are grateful for your support!
