Aspen Senior Day Center is a one of a kind licensed adult day care facility in Provo, Utah which offers a safe option for families who may need to work during the day or need respite time for seniors who are active and have some memory impairment.
Aspen Senior Day Center opened its doors in 2010. Gary Staples, the Owner and Administrator, wanted to provide a friendly and safe environment for seniors with memory loss who also want to stay in their homes for as long as possible.
“All seniors do better when they can get out of the house and enjoy activities that help them feel normal again, such as socializing and making friends, eating good food, singing, arts and crafts, etc,” says Gary, “especially seniors with dementia.”
The Day Center offers a unique program called Cognasium, or “gymnasium for the brain”.
This program focuses on mental stimulation, light exercise, fun socialization, and good nutrition. The Center’s fun activities and good food is a wonderful option for seniors with memory loss who need an enjoyable and safe place to spend their day.
How can Aspen Senior Day Center benefit caregivers?
Aspen Senior Day Center is also a great resource for family caregivers. We hold a monthly caregiver support group and help connect families with other resources in the community that might be helpful.
