Grace Center Provides Positive, Engaging Day Service Locally

On any given day at the Grace Center for Adult Day Services in Corvallis, there are a wide range of activities happening — chair tai chi in the gym, haircuts in the salon and special presentations from organizations such as the Chintimini Wildlife Refuge. These diverse and engaging activities are all designed to support a dynamic day service for seniors and individuals living with disabilities.

Grant funding from the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center helps support the Grace Center’s financial assistance program through grant funding, which allows more individuals to join the program who may not otherwise be able to afford it. The Grace Center offers a positive place for participants to spend time that provides cognitive stimulation, socialization and physical activity. It also provides much needed respite care when family caregivers need a break.

“Many of our participants benefit from the financial assistance program,” said Director of Community Relations Tera Stegner. “The financial support from community partners like Samaritan Health Services truly helps us serve a need in the community and support our mission.”
