The deadline to purchase tickets is March 28, so don’t wait to reserve your spot! Call 409-741-2538 today to get your tickets. 

Who We Serve

Licensed as an adult day care program by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability since August 21, 2001, Libbie’s Place serves adults age 55 and older who are experiencing decreased physical functioning, memory loss, depression or social isolation. 

But Libbie’s Place is more than just an adult day care — it’s a place where friendships are forged and fun is had all day long. It’s a program of care and services that help seniors maintain their dignity and independence and provides compassionate assistance with medications, daily personal care and therapeutic activities in a friendly social setting. 

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!

Libbie’s Place encourages seniors to enroll in the program before it’s too late! Our services can help prevent a decline in function and improve overall health instead of waiting until the senior experiences an illness or injury.

Libbie’s Place professional staff includes: a licensed social worker, certified activity director, program nurse, care associates, office manager/volunteer coordinator, our faithful bus drivers, registered nurses and a consulting dietitian.

A monthly caregiver support group that is open to the community is also offered the first Tuesday each month at 5:30 p.m. at Moody Methodist Church in Rm. 120.

Bus transportation to and from Libbie’s Place is available both in Galveston and on the Mainland. 

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 or by volunteering to help with daily activities, such as storytelling, piano playing, pet visits and crafts. All proceeds directly support daily operations at Libbie’s Place. 

Libbie’s Place offers a financial assistance program based on a sliding scale for qualified applicants. Qualified veterans may also receive financial help from the VA. Many long-term care policies also help cover the cost of attendance.
