FSL (Foundation for Senior Living) has received a grant from the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation for their capital campaign, “Building a Home Away From Home.” The grant will fund a new Adult Day Health Center in Glendale, which will serve the entire northwest Valley. The new center will include naming rights for the Halle Foundation.
The gift pushes FSL closer to its goal of raising $4.3 million for the facility. It will also help expand the organization’s services to the senior community at large.
The new Adult Day Health Center will include shower and laundry facilities, therapeutic recreation, education activities, a serving kitchen, media and exercise rooms and a memory garden. The current center is housed in a rented facility that no longer meets the FSL standards for quality care or accessibility.
“There is such a need in our community for this new Adult Day Health Center, and we are so proud to be involved with this project. We are grateful for all the wonderful services that Foundation for Senior Living provides for so many individuals,” says Diane Halle.
FSL’s team includes a registered nurse to supervise health-care management; certified therapeutic recreational therapists, certified nursing assistants, social workers; and dedicated staff providing personal attention, individualized care plans, interactive games and activities as well as companionship. FSL ADHS offers nutritious meals to meet a variety of needs, therapeutic recreational activities, daily exercise, personal care including bathing, community outings and special events, celebrations and holiday programs, limited transportation, education and information programs.
The staff and specialized services are also available to support individuals experiencing dementia, traumatic brain injuries and a variety of other cognitive and physical challenges. FSL’s ADHS is a haven for family members and caregivers, offering the family respite from the stress and demands of full-time support for loved ones and the opportunity to remain in the workforce.
