Eternal Valley Memorial Park sponsors Adult Day Care

Recognizing the critical need for Alzheimer and dementia-afflicted seniors as well as their caregivers, dignitaries from Eternal Valley Memorial Park visited the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center on Nov. 3 to lend their support to the Center's Adult Day Care & Resource Center.

General Manager Richard Steinmetz headed the delegation that included Steve Otten, Mortuary Director and Jim Biby, Marketing Director.

In addition to presenting their first quarterly check for $900 to Executive Director Brad Berens, the ADCRC benefactors were given a tour of the facility by the ADCRC Supervisor Gladys Ehrhardt. Steinmetz, Biby and Otten are now challenging other businesses to follow their lead.

Nicknamed "The Club" by its participants, the Senior Center's Respite Program provides much-needed respite for beleaguered caregivers as well as critically important cognitive stimulation, physical conditioning and socialization for seniors needing non-medical care.

The program includes lunch as well as snacks and trained staff that assist with activities of daily life. Hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The program costs much less than other alternatives of care.

Funding is provided by the Los Angeles County Area Agency on Aging, the Celebrity Waiter Fundraiser Dinner in February each year, and generous donations by sponsors like Eternal Valley Memorial Park.
