"My wife continues to benefit greatly from the Encinitas Glenner Day Care Program. She attends 5 days a week and enjoys spending time with her friends and staff. The Glenner Center is not only a benefit to her, but the respite I receive is critical to maintaining my mental health and stability. I’m not sure how well I would be doing without it."

“During my mother’s time at the Glenner Town Square, she made new friends that she talked about frequently, brought home several coloring pages, spoke excitedly about the exercises and singing she did at the center, also the times the emotional support dogs visited. I always knew she was safe, taken care of, and provided with many wonderful activities which made my days more worry free. Thank you so much for your wonderful program and caring for my mother.” ~ Teresa M.

“Thank you and the team immensely for the support you not only provide the participants but the caregivers. You truly are the gold standard. When I enter Glenner or speak to anyone on the team, it is clearly much more than a job to you all. You care deeply about the work you do and the people you serve which is exactly the type of social worker I want to interact with. You have to care, and I can tell by all of your support and guidance you all care. I have learned more than you can believe from just simple emails and conversations with you and your team. Thank you for caring for our loved ones, as well as us - their family members. It makes this road less difficult to navigate.”

"Thank you for the information you have given me. It helped me understand what it is about. I am so thankful to you and Shannon for being there during a time where I didn't know where to turn. Also, please tell Pam that she was like an angel that showed up during the time that I was losing my sanity and enrolled me into GLENNERCARE.

I can't thank you enough for all the help you have given me, my husband and my mom. Dementia/Alzheimer’s is very, very bad.

Thanks, I appreciate you all!"

“My dad has been going to the Glenner Center since late February. They just moved into Town Square two weeks ago, this is week 3, maybe week 4. The Glenner Center has been amazing with him and for me too because i don’t have to worry about what he’s doing while i’m at work. He doesn’t feel “old” so he thinks that he goes there to work. It was their idea and it worked like a charm. Everyone is just wonderful, and since he’s busy all day, we both sleep better at night. Yay!!”
