A Community Respite Ministry for Tuscaloosa


Connect LOGO color.png

We are so excited to introduce a new ministry (called 'Connect') that will provide fellowship and stimulation for people who have memory loss due to Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinsons or stroke.  


Respite was started 10 years ago in Montgomery at First United Methodist Church by Daphne Johnston. See the link below for more information about the program.









We had over 50 people attend our first Connect volunteer training on February 21, 2022.  

We need you!  There are lots of opportunities to help.

This is a great resource for caregivers and their loved ones but they need to know the program exists. Promote it at work and with friends and family, and especially to other churches! 

Financial donations can be sent to the church marked ‘Connect’ or see links above.
