Our mission is to provide a positive daytime experience for seniors and those who are memory impaired, by promoting self-esteem, dignity, independence and purpose through enriching activities in a safe Place.
With the growing aging population in the United States, the need for adult day care is growing. OUR PLACE is essentially the same as child day care, except that it is for adults. Adults attending OUR PLACE live at home, but need a safe place during the day to socialize and participate in purposeful activities. […]
The activities at OUR PLACE provide enjoyment, entertainment and companionship. We believe one of the greatest benefits we can offer our Seniors is engagement with their peers; our activities are developed with this core belief in mind. These scheduled programs build consistent routines that our participants can count on
Fall 2017 was filled with memories of hikes, leaves, grapes, nice weather, crafts, and forever friends. What we cherish most at Our Place is the love and friendship’s that are made!
Our Place started with Doc
Our Place all started with Doc, My daddy. Doc is a brilliant scientist, with a PhD in Biophysics/Physiology. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer type dementia in 2008. My Dad can’t remember what he did five minutes ago, yet the “feeling” of what happened, he remembers for hours.
My Mom has cancer and often feels week, leaving her with little energy to care for my Dad. Although my family and I take care of my Dad as often as we can, because we are busy, we needed some help.
As we searched for options, we soon found they were limited at best, especially in the Washington County Area. It wasn’t safe for my Dad to be home alone, and he did not qualify for a long term care facility. Besides, we were not prepared to let him go. What we needed was a place in between. A Place that could soothe our worries and the guilt we felt in leaving him. We were looking for a place that was comfortable, and where my Dad could find purpose and independence. A place where he could make friends and feel at home.
The process became frustrating because no one place fulfilled all of our needs. With my extensive experience as a nurse in the geriatric field, I asked myself “couldn’t I open my own place?” A place that incorporated all the positive things I saw in the process of looking, as well as some of the things I felt I could do better. In my journey to make this dream come true, I shared my idea with my dear friends who inspired me to make it a reality. With their partnership, we have created OUR PLACE. We are honored that we have the opportunity to serve those who have a story like mine. We welcome you to OUR PLACE.
