A program designed for individuals with Dementia, including Alzheimer's disease and other memory losses. Program offers close supervision with an array of activities designed to keep the participants at their highest activity level possible. These activities include exercise, music, art, discussion, and therapy pet visits.
The Respite program meets every Tuesday from 10:00am-3:00pm at the Open House Senior Center, located at 6500 Stockton Avenue. The monthly cost is $101 for El Cerrito Residents and $128.00 for Non-residents. Hot lunch can be added for an additional $3.00 per lunch reservation. $5 per lunch for participants under 60.
In addition, this program encourages family members of the participants to use this time as a respite and leave participants at the Open House Senior Center, so that they may enjoy some time to themselves.
We send a statement at the end of each month to make payment more convenient. This amount helps to offset some of the expenses of the program. Additional donations are always gratefully received. Please call (510) 559-7677 for payment accommodations
