History

 

 

 

 

Fostoria Community Hospital received many calls for assistance from caregivers who would ask "I need somewhere to take my husband, who has Alzheimer's disease, so I can run errands or get some rest. I don't want to put him in a nursing home, yet." 

DayBreak was born on April 17, 2000, from grants from the following:

1.    Brookdale National Foundation

2.    Cummins Foundation

3.    Greater Fostoria Community Foundation

4.    Fostoria Rotary

5.    Henry Geary Community Initiative Grant

6.    In kind assistance from Fostoria Community Hospital and the Good Shepherd Home.

You can find DayBreak on the lower level of the Good Shepherd Home in Fostoria, Ohio. The program assists caregivers on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Participants of DayBreak range from early to mid-stages of memory loss whether the illness is related to Alzheimer's disease, stroke, or other dementias.
