Mary-Jean Bowman Muir doesn’t know how she managed to care for her husband, Lachlan, before he started attending the adult day program at the Salvation Army twice a week. She uses the time he is at the program to not only check off tasks from her to-do list, like banking, appointments, grocery shopping, and household chores, but to take care of herself.
