ACCA Recognizes Geri Williams for National Volunteer Week
ACCA’s Bentley Adult Day Health is one of the best kept secrets in Athens. As part of the National Volunteer Week, we wanted to recognize Geri Williams, ATR. Geri recently retired and relocated to Athens. She is registered art therapist and has been volunteering with the Adult Day Health participants for almost a year.
This week, they had their first art show here at ACCA. Please check out these stand out pieces. Geri is just one of many volunteers that make the world of ACCA go around. Geri recently said, “They got me started volunteering over here after a career of art therapy with children. Now.. they can’t get me away from the place. It is so rewarding, the clients are teaching me more than I could ever dream of teaching them.”
Bentley’s Adult Day Care is designed for individuals who do not require 24-hour institutional care, but are not capable of full-time independent living due to a physical or mental disability. Adult Day Care’s respite program helps alleviate both the physical and emotional stress felt by many family members who care for a loved one on a day-to-day basis. Our program allows the caregiver opportunities to run errands, visit with family and friends or just rest at home.
