We Specialize in Dementia
Alzheimer’s disease affects an estimated one in every three families. In Houston alone, approximately 40,000 members of our community are affected by Alzheimer’s. While treatment possibilities are limited and the toll on families is tremendous, the Sheltering Arms Day Center offers help and support.
The Sheltering Arms Adult Day Center is a state licensed facility established in 1987 designed specifically for adults who have Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Providing effective and appropriate programs throughout the day for members is the most important aspect of our services. A calm, predictable and accepting environment provides a sense of security that enables individuals with dementia to make full use of cognitive abilities. A structured and carefully implemented program of failure-free activities ensures success, enhances self-esteem and creates a sense of purpose each day
