Forty years ago, Dr. George and Joy Glenner took a frantic call from a distressed caregiver and stopped a murder-suicide. That fateful incident drove Dr. Glenner to "start taking care of the living" as his compassion for those caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's was as tangible as his scientific genius. That same year, the Glenners opened the first-in-the nation dementia-specific, nonprofit adult day health care program. Today, the Glenners' legacy includes 3 centers throughout San Diego County where hundreds of thousands have received care in safe and nurturing environments, and their families have benefited from worry-free respite, case management, and TLC. Continuing the Glenners' directive to remain accessible to all, for the last 8 years, due to the generosity of donors, this nonprofit has maintained an hourly rate of $11.88 and offered specialized services for free. 2765 Main Street, Suite A Chula Vista, CA 91911 Gloria Baker, Director of Philanthropy philanthropy@glenner.org • MISSION is to provide affordable and accessible adult day care and support services to families affected by Alzheimer's and other forms of memory impairment diseases • ADULT DAY CARE PROGRAMS offer affordable respite care to family members caring for a loved one with dementia.
