We appreciate your support as we work through to the COVID-19 public health emergency and the continued closure of our Grace Place Alzheimer’s Activity Centers.
With vaccines readily available, many are asking when Grace Place will re-open?
We are looking forward to re-opening Grace Place. We are working on finding new homes for Grace Place to ensure we are serving the entire community’s need. Grace Place will not open for regular daily attendance until we feel confident the community we serve will be safe for daily in-person gatherings resembling pre-pandemic conditions.
Please know that an at-home Grace Place service is in development to include assessments, activities, and caregiver support, provided by trained and qualified Grace Place staff.
In the meantime, we will continue to:
- Host a monthly support group
- Virtually meet weekly for Grace Notes, our choir for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia and their care givers
- Provide and enhance caregiver resources and support through partnerships with the Alzheimer’s Association, UT Health, and others
- Regularly distribute activity packets for at-home activities for caregivers and their loved ones
- Identify and develop ways to serve the community until we find new homes for Grace Place
If you have specific questions about anything related to Grace Place service please do not hesitate to reach out to Christina Avena, Grace Place Director, by email or phone: 210.735.5115 x1002.

Grace Place Alzheimer’s Activity Centers are San Antonio’s only non-profit Alzheimer’s-specific adult day activity centers. Our services provide socialization and activities for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. These activities focus on the strengths and abilities of our clients, and are facilitated by staff who are trained in dementia care. For family members, caring for a person with dementia can be difficult and stressful. We recognize that job performance, personal well-being and finances are often affected by becoming a caregiver. At Grace Place, our goal is to alleviate stress by providing affordable and safe respite care so our clients’ families can lead a more balanced and healthy life. We are state licensed and have locations serving Northwest and Northeast San Antonio:
A physician diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or related dementia is required for admittance. We ask that participants be able to transfer independently and safely. Also, clients must be continent and able to feed themselves.
How much does it cost?
Those who meet the requirements and apply may be approved for reduced rates of service at Grace Place. Costs are subsidized through funding and donations from the community.
We are proud to honor those who have served our country by offering a reduced rate for all military veterans and spouses who enroll at Grace Place. If you or your spouse have served our country, please be sure to share this during your admission with us!
