Very sad. Elsergarden has closed. Because of this agency I could continue to work full time as first my father then my mother need care while I was away all day. Our community no longer needed the services of an adult day care for elders with dementia. Apparently more people are quitting their job and staying home or putting family in care facilities I was so fortunate to have Elserfarden when I needed them.
25 years ago I watched this organization provide services while housed in a church where I attended weekly meetings. I observed the services provided then and now. Location and time passes. Commitment to clients, families and community does not.
Eldergarden helps families stay together..physically, emotionally and culturally .By giving relief to caregiver's on their terms, the family unit can be extended on life's terms. Eldergarden is a great gift to Greeley.
Eldergarden has really changed our lives for the better. My husband
is a stroke survivor of 10 years. He is in a wheel chair and has no speech ability. For many years he was cared for in our home by visting
attendants who took good care of his needs but did not stimulate his mind or give him any exercise.
After attending Eldergarden Adult Day Care, Chuck is so much happier, more alert and physically stong. He loves going every day to see his friends, playing games, learning current events, sharing great food prepared on site, and enjoying special event days and groups that come to entertain the participants of the Eldergarden Program.
The staff is so good with the clients. They are well trained to meet their needs and have the special personalities to make them feel
welcome and important to the group.
I am able to go to work every day, which I have to do to provide our
financial needs, knowing Chuck is cared for and cared about. I know
he will enjoy his day and be well cared for.
