[separator headline=”h1″ title=”Aging in Place”]
[pullquote align=”right”]Grace Place, The Health Club for Seniors is a new concept in senior services because the club combines the services of a medical model adult day center, a senior center, and a spa in an exclusive country club atmosphere. The focus is on prevention and improvement! The founder, DG Gridley, who is a senior herself, discovered that the day time options for meeting the needs of seniors were limited in Lexington, KY, when she became the primary caregiver for her mother and father in law in 2007. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” has been DG’s guiding principle as long as she can remember, and prompted her to set about creating a the kind of environment where she would like to spend her days as an elder. Statistics show that most seniors prefer to remain in their homes as long as their needs can be met there. ‘Aging in place’ is also the most cost effective setting for aging. As we age, we may need a little assistance with medical needs, getting proper nutrition, and social interaction and mental stimulation. The Club provides all that and more!
