Caring for loved ones isn’t always easy. Finding the right medical professionals, staying up on the latest information, and planning activities to help them stay happy and engaged can be a full-time job on top of all your other responsibilities. But you are not alone. We started the Active Living for All daytime Community Center to give caretakers the support and resources they need to keep the people they love in the homes they love for as long as possible.
Our Community Center provides a welcoming, inclusive group environment where people of different abilities, veterans and seniors can engage and make connections with one another doing things they enjoy.
You’ll have peace of mind knowing your loved one is getting the person-centered care they need, while giving you time to rest and recharge.
The ALFA daytime Community Center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Our programming is designed and tailored to the needs of each member. Some of our Community Center services include but are not limited to the following:
Active Living for All has a multifaceted, experienced staff that lead person-centered care and education for clients, including a registered nurse and a certified dementia specialist all on staff full time.
ALFA’s trusted staff and volunteers have more than 100 years of combined experience working with people with different abilities, seniors and veterans. They provide educational opportunities to staff, clients, families and the public on community care, active living and inclusivity, as well as create personalized, individual care plans for clients based on their needs and preferences.
The first step in the Enrollment Process is to complete the Enrollment Application. Completed forms can be returned to Alison Sarkozy, program manager, at email@example.com or by mail to 201 Hillside Court, East Lansing, MI 48823.
We’d love to meet you and show you around. Call us to arrange an in-person meeting that will include the program manager, who is a dementia care specialist; our registered nurse; yourself; your potential member; and any other interested family members. The meeting takes about two hours, and we are happy to provide support for your loved one during the meeting and tour.
Prior to your loved one attending the Community Center, a physical and TB screening must be completed by a doctor. Our program manager will provide you the information you need to get started.
Now it’s time to join us! Our program manager will work with you to schedule days, transportation and other needs. Once you finish this step, your loved one is ready to have fun with us at the Community Center.
