“In the state of Texas, the number of at-home caregivers has increased by 49 percent since 2009, said Encore’s Community Director Gary Allinger. “We want to ensure those caregivers have a resource available for advice and a much-needed break. Offering this trial to the community opens our doors to those who may not have known such a resource existed.”
The free three-day trial is available to any member of the community with Alzheimer’s or dementia who has not been to Encore within the past year. Encore provides a safe and secure day center for guests with Alzheimer’s and dementia. As part of their stay, guests can participate in therapeutic activities designed to enhance their lives through specially developed memory care practices. Activities include art, dance, pet therapy, cooking classes, exercise, even video games and more.
“Our daily enrichment activities focus on the physical, mental and spiritual needs of those with Alzheimer’s and dementia,” said Allinger. “We ensure the sensory input, social engagement and acuity level needs of our guests are met. This provides at-home caregivers with a sense of relief knowing that their loved ones best interests are being taken into consideration and that the activities at Encore will benefit their quality of life.”
Located at 6505 W. Park Blvd., Suite 116, in Plano, Encore is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Guests are provided with breakfast, lunch and a snack.
