Libbie’s Place

While the right health care provider is invaluable for seniors, it’s not the only factor in continued health and overall wellness. Libbie’s Place has been providing senior day care for more than 10 years. More than just basic adult day care, Libbie’s Place provides a place for seniors to forge friendships in a nurturing and safe environment.  We serve people age 55 and older who are experiencing decreased physical functioning, memory loss, depression or social isolation.

Socialization is now being recognized as an integral part of a senior’s overall health. Many seniors that attend Libbie’s Place experience positive changes  such as becoming more alert, eating better and becoming more physically active.

The overall structure of Libbie’s Place is innovative and adaptable, allowing each individual’s needs to be met. It also allows our participants to take part in activities without any stress or fear of not being able to complete an activity, giving each person a sense of accomplishment and boosting their self-esteem.

Support Libbie’s Place

Libbie’s Place is a nonprofit community outreach mission of Moody Methodist Church and a United Way agency. Individuals and groups can support our senior participants through financial donations to our Saints for Seniors fund. All proceeds directly support daily operations at Libbie’s Place.

We also welcome volunteers to help out with all of our daily activities. Our volunteers bring various talents and opportunities to the participants, such as storytelling, piano playing, pet visits and crafts.
