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.
As you know, the health of our Grace Place family is been of at the forefront of our decision making. While our state has continues to reopen, our clientele remains at high-risk for COVID-19. Looking ahead, our next projected date of opening is in early 2021. This is in alignment with local city health officials and regional recommendations of senior congregate settings. We regret the hardship this causes your family or loved one but know our clients’ health is paramount.
During our closure time, we will continue to learn more about the disease and work to reimagine the Grace Place care model. Unfortunately, this closure means we have to furlough staff members related to client care. Grace Place Activity Director, Christina Avena, remains on staff to help monitor the situation, evolve our program and support our caregivers with support, activities, education and referrals related to respite.
Thank you for trusting the care of your loved ones with Grace Place this year. To be aware of the latest news for Grace Place as well as resources for caregiver education and support, please join our email newsletter list by clicking the below sign up button.
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?
$1260 per month for full time attendance (5 days a week)
$845 per month for part-time attendance (3 days a week)
