About Friends Place Adult Day Services

Welcome to Friends Place, where we offer specialized daytime senior care for individuals with Alzheimers and other related dementias. Our adult day care center provides supervision and an active adult program for aging parents, spouses, and other older adults who need supervision during the day, helping them to remain independent for as long as possible.

Our adult day program is an ideal alternative to assisted living, allowing caregivers to keep their loved ones at home and in the community. With a nurse on staff to monitor our members' health and dispense medication as needed, caregivers can have peace of mind knowing their loved one is receiving excellent care.

Our adult social day care is affordable and flexible, making it a cost-effective alternative to nursing home care. At Friends Place, we believe in a wellness philosophy of care that emphasizes meaningful activities and socialization opportunities for those individuals with memory problems living in Dallas/North Texas.

Our mission is to provide a much-needed break for caregivers while giving their loved ones a chance to enjoy life. Join us at Friends Place, and let us provide you with adult day care and respite services for your loved one.

Community Service Projects

Throughout our life, many people enjoy the opportunity to do good works for others, and, a diagnosis of Alzheimers should not change that.  Our members stay connected with the community; enjoy being of service and feel like they are still useful because of meaningful projects such as:

 

Working on special pillows donated to local hospitals

Making brownies or cookies for the fire department

Baking dog biscuits for local animal shelters

Creating book marks for childrens library

Stuffing envelopes and/or mailing projects for non-profit organizations

 

Volunteer Program for Participants

One of the goals of our programs have been to allow involvement by members with the life activities of the center to the extent they develop a sense of ownership in the program.  For people who derive greater enjoyment from working, they have the opportunity to volunteer.  Just a few of the many tasks are:

 

Arranging fresh flowers for the dining tables

Filling outside bird feeders and/or watering plants and flowers

Folding linen napkins for meals

Serving as an ambassador to make new members feel welcome
