LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 31, 2012) — Christian Care Communities will celebrate the grand opening of its new Adult Day Center at 1015 West Magazine Street on Sunday, June 3, from 2 to 5 p.m. The grand opening will offer the community its first look inside the new center and will feature tours, a meet and greet with Virginia Bell, co-author of the best-selling “The Best Friends Approach to Alzheimer’s Care,” and a performance by the Greater Salem Baptist Church.
“This new center brings adult day care and services that much closer to home for families in west Louisville and the downtown community,” said Dr. Keith Knapp, President and Chief Executive Officer of Christian Care Communities.
The new Christian Care Adult Day Center is located within Christian Health Center West and is specially designed to serve older adults with Alzheimer’s and other memory disorders and seniors who need assistance with everyday activities as a result of physical impairments. It will provide personal care, nursing care, activities and meals in a safe, home-like setting.
The Christian Care Adult Day Center in Louisville is licensed to care for 40 seniors.
The day rate is $60, with half-day rates also available. Cost is often covered by Medicaid. Christian Care also provides and coordinates transportation services to and from the center.
In Louisville, Christian Care Communities also manages the Oak and Acorn Adult Day Center at 631 South 28th Street. Its two other Adult Day Centers are located in Lexington, with new centers set to open soon in Nicholasville and Hopkinsville, Ky.
