The Center is open from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. with services for persons with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. The early and later hours are especially for caregivers who work or need longer respite times on occasion. Caregivers are responsible for dropping off their loved one at the Center for the morning extended hours, but the Center will provide van transportation at the end of the day if the home is in our catchment area.
