CWC Time Off for
Caregivers
Program Director
Nic Caballero, ASW joined
Citizens Who Care as the Time
Off Program Director this
spring, upon the retirement of former director, Jackie Stephens. Nic has a Masters in Social Work degree from California State University, Sacramento and a B.A. in Psychology
and Latin American Studies from California State University,
San Bernardino. Nic, also, has a long history of voluntarism,
community leadership and experience working with diverse

talked about how people with dementia often can remember music from their youth,
when they were in their 20’s. I love music,
so I went on a musical journey back to the
twenties and thirties (before I was born).
I was ready to spend an afternoon with
Marcus. On my first day, Wanda thought it
would be a good idea for the three of us to
spend some time together. That was a great
idea, since Marcus really wasn’t communicating very well at that point. Wanda and
I got along immediately, talking about our
mutual backgrounds in teaching and South
American art. Her house was full of treasures from years of traveling. But, there
was one painting of a young lady in a yellow sweater that Marcus pointed out to me
and it turned out he had painted it a long
time ago.
I used YouTube to find songs sung
by the original artists on the
internet and was amazed to hear
Marcus sing the lyrics.
I got over my nervousness quickly and
Wanda left for a dentist appointment. I used
YouTube to find songs sung by the original artists on the internet and was amazed
to hear Marcus sing the lyrics (“Tennessee
Waltz” sung by Patti Page and “Yankee
Doodle Dandy” sung by James Cagney).
On another visit, I printed (in a large print)
the lyrics from a song he didn’t know, but I
thought he would like it.
The song was “I Believe in You” by
Don Williams. Then I found out that he
could read, because he sang right along. It
brought tears to my eyes and to Wanda too,
when she came home and there was a singalong.
However, those days were numbered
and it was time for Marcus to go to a memory care facility in Dixon. I had become so
friendly with Wanda and cared so much for
Marcus, that I continued my volunteer work
but in a new way. I would drive Wanda to
Dixon to see her husband every week. Well,
I got to know all the residents and employees of the Cherry Street Memory Care Residence. I learned a lot about dementia, because each resident had their own story and
I visited with them for two years. By that
time, I had made a cd with music from the
20’s – 50’s, with a lot of Broadway hits. I
brought a cd player to Cherry Street. We all

served 6 years on the Davis Chamber of Commerce
Board of Directors and in 2012 she served as the Board

ulie Sheehan is a local native whose family members
were some of the original Davisville homesteaders.
She received her BA degree from UC Davis and went
on to have an eleven year career with the university as a conference and event planner. She currently serves as the General Manager at SwimAmerica, a learn-to-swim school in

while serving on the board.

danced. Those are great memories.
When Marcus passed away, Wanda
and I continued our weekly visits and have
become great friends. Like most ladies, we
like to shop and go to lunch. I think we’ve
been to every lunch spot and every store
in Davis and Woodland. We plan to go to
Macy’s in Sacramento one day.
We both love to read and we are constantly sharing our current book reviews. I
got her hooked on Netflix and we also talk
about movies. We never run out of things

to talk about, from world news to who’s
cute and who’s not. We don’t always agree.
Jared Leto won the best supporting actor at
the Academy Awards and Wanda thought
he was not very attractive with his long
hair and I thought he was dreamy. We both
admit that her husband, Marcus was one
handsome man.
I have been in the helping fields all
my life. I’ve worked with babies, young
children, teens and now in my work as a
career counselor, I work with people from
high school to retirement. However, I had
never worked with the elderly and I don’t

I’m glad I got to meet and spend time

having Wanda in my life. I thank Citizens

me.

BIG Day of Giving (DOG) is a local initiative to increase philanthropy presented by GiveLocalNow, along with your
local community foundations, Sacramento Region Community Foundation, Placer Community Foundation and Yolo
Community Foundation, the BIG Day of Giving will take place during a 24-hour period on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.
• 24 hours to give where your heart is
• Donations made at givelocalnow.org on May 6 will be eligible for a boost from a pool of matching funds.
• BIG Day of Giving is a part of a National Day of Giving called Give Local America
• Donate online at GiveLocalNow.org.
CWC HAPPENING NOW from Joanne Bell, Executive Director
I
t’s quite literally
been an eventful few
months for CWC.
While our volunteers, with
staff support, are busy
providing respite and visits
to approximately 100 recipients a month, the CWC
Board of Directors works
unrelentingly to assure that
necessary funding is in place to keep the programs
going and growing. I enjoy sharing some of the highlights with you now.
The In-Home Respite and Friendly Visiting program was blessed to receive a generous $17,500
grant from the Dignity Health/Woodland Healthcare
Community Grants program. One of our caregivers,
Barbara Crumb, was the featured speaker at the
awards lunch in January and eloquently shared her
experience of caring for her mother daily. She emotionally thanked CWC volunteers for all they do to
make it possible. In December the Time Off for Care-
givers Program received a grant from the Episcopal
Church of St. Martin, and the Convalescent Hospital
program a grant from the Biberstein Fund for Social
Action. A $3,000 donation from All Things Right &
Relevant in Davis helped to provide general operating funds.
If you missed the Annual CWC Concert in February, you missed a rollicking good time. “The Broadway Song Book of 1977” had the audience singing
along and on its feet by the final curtain. The tremendously talented performers and accompanists donate
many hours of their developing and rehearsing the
show. We look forward to continuing this tradition
in 2015! Tickets sales and sponsorships generated
$25,000 for CWC programs.
We are currently in the midst of CWC BINGOthon events (April is BINGOthon Month) held at
convalescent hospitals and assisted living facilities in
Davis and Woodland. The efforts of the many participants to raise pledges to sponsor their playing
alongside and visiting the elderly residents while so
doing, is greatly appreciated by not only CWC, but
expressed by happy smiles during the festive games.
Two big events are on the immediate horizon!
Please help us spread the word and participate.
Big DOG (Day of Giving) is a 24-hour online
fundraising opportunity for CWC. The event is part
of a regional initiative to support local charities and
donating is easier than buying a pair of shoes online.
Just go to GIVELOCALNOW.ORG on May 6, enter
Citizens Who Care as one of your charities of choice,
and make a quick online donation. Businesses
through the nation will boost your pledge by offering
limited matching funds.
And last, but not least, CWC’s Davis BeerFest
is on June 7. This year marks the tenth anniversary
for this event! One of the first and best craft beer
tasting events in the region the Davis BeerFest offers beer lovers unlimited tastings and unlimited fun,
all under the overpass at Sudwerk Brewing in Davis.
More about the event can be found at www.DavisBeerFest.org, and tickets to this major fundraiser can
be purchased there in advance for a savings.
See you on June 7!

groups of people. He is a supervisor at Mutual Assistance Network
and volunteers as a mental health therapist at The Gender Health
Center in Sacramento. In addition to being a social worker, Nic is
a yoga instructor. He finds yoga to be a great way to practice self
care and he finds opportunities to share his practice with others. A
native of Southern California, Nic has lived in Sacramento for the
past three years.
Nic is seeking to further expand and diversify the Time Off
Program with the goal of serving all families who might have a
need for weekend respite from caregiving and encourages any one
interested to call CWC to schedule an introductory visit to the program.
“Though we miss Jackie Stephens and the positive and warm
spirit she brought to our clients and staff, we welcome Nic’s expertise and the enthusiasm he brings to this important program for
caregivers. We all wish to expand it to serve a larger population
in Yolo County. Jackie was a blessing to the program. We are all
happy that she now has an opporunity to enjoy her family without
time constraints and the full rewards of retiring she so deserves,”
says CWC Executive Director, Joanne Bell.
