The Glenner Memory Care Centers

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 6 people are interested

The George G. Glenner Alzheimer's Family Center in Hillcrest is a day program for seniors with dementia. We provide fun activities for our seniors, and we need extra hands and hearts to help with our arts and crafts program. You don't need to be Martha Stewart, and you don't need to bring anything but your enthusiasm and patience. You will be appreciated endlessly by both participants and staff, and you will leave knowing that you have helped make a beautiful day.

This is a weekly event (Thursday afternoons from 1:30 -3:00), so we are hoping to have people who will come on a regular basis.

Mission Statement

Glenner Alzheimer's Family Center serves families and people coping with Alzheimer's disease. We are an adult day care center open Monday - Friday from 9:00am - 5:00pm. Our center offers stimulating programs appropriate fro those with AD such as music, arts and crafts, exercise, pet therapy, games, etc. Our program allows people with AD to live at home with their families as long as possible. We area small center, licensed to have 24 participants here at a time, and we offer a 5:1 patient to staff ratio which allows us to really know our participants. We love having people and organizations from the community come in and share their talents and passions with our participants. Along with our day care program, we also offer a support group for family members every Wednesday afternoon.

Description

Our program offers respite for family members who need to go about the everyday business of their lives secure in the knowledge that their loved ones are safe and happy. Our day to day business, though, is providing our participants with stimulating activities and the opportunity for social interaction; in other words, we do our best to make sure they have fun while they are with us.
