FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 2013
SHARP SPECTRUM AUDITORIUM
For thirty years our centers (formerly known as the George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers, Inc.) have provided individualized high-quality day programs in a family-like setting for adults affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of memory impairment. Many of the participants in our centers include the frail elderly as well as veterans. Our highly-trained and long-term staff at the Glenner centers ensures that the daily life of each participant is enhanced through structured, therapeutic activities, nutritional meals, and socialization which have been shown to possibly delay cognitive decline and increase contentment. Our secure centers and our high staff to participant ratio offer the ability to keep a loved one at home for a longer period of time or provide a meaningful transition of care.
A primary focus of our mission is to provide support and resources for the caregiver. Adult day programs offer the caregiver respite, the ability to continue working, and reduced financial obligation. Our weekly support groups and seminars are professionally facilitated, offered at no charge, and help prepare the caregiver for the challenges of caring for someone with unique needs.
