Grace Place About Us

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.
