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. In the words of a participant, Libbie’s Place is love. A program of care and services that help seniors maintain their dignity and independence, Libbie’s Place 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.

 

A Typical Day

The staff at Libbie’s Place is dedicated to enriching the lives of senior adults. Daily programs include:

• Exercise

• Music

• Games

• Outings

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

Libbie’s Place welcomes volunteers to help out with all of the daily activities! The volunteers bring varying talents and opportunities to the participants, such as storytelling, piano playing, pet visits and crafts.
