Benevilla announced their West Valley Life Enrichment day program, and will be hosting an open house, 5-7 p.m., Oct. 6. The program is located at the Church at Cactus, 8133 W. Cactus Road.

One of four Benevilla Life Enrichment programs, this stimulating and interactive program supports a diverse group of people with a wide range of care needs. The program provides daytime care for members with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, as well as adults with disabilities or those disabled by a stroke who live in Peoria, Glendale and west Phoenix.

Activities are adapted for specific physical challenges to include everyone’s participation. Members have the best of all worlds: a socially inviting, club-like atmosphere with the support of amazing professionals and dedicated volunteers focused on the personal needs of every member. With a focus on socialization, activities include cognitive stimulation through brain games, meaningful activities, group exercise, a creative arts program, discussion groups, public outings and interaction with participant centric entertainment including singing, dancing and memory challenges.

The program provides the latest in proven therapeutic methods for increased levels of happiness and engagement for all members.

The West Valley program has been in operation for more than 22 years.

A specially designed essential lifestyle program is tailored for your loved one by an enrichment specialist and implemented by Benevilla staff.

Outings, delicious meals and social exchanges create enjoyable days for members, providing caregivers the perfect options for respite. Everyone can benefit from the opportunity to connect with others in meaningful ways, no matter their age or medical diagnosis. Stop by the West Valley program and meet Director Kylee Lavigne and her staff of caring professionals making sure those meaningful experiences happen every day.

Benevilla life enrichment day programs provide respite for family members caring for a loved one. Caregivers need time off from the stresses and strains of caring for loved one. For every person enrolled in a Benevilla program, two people get their lives back: the individual and the caregiver.

Call 623-584-4999 to RSVP.

Continuing CDC COVID-19 safety guidelines will be followed and social distancing as well as masks are required. All who attend will receive a free swag bag and can enter to win a raffle prize.

Started by the community and for the community in 1981, Benevilla is a not-for-profit family services agency dedicated to enriching the lives of West Valley residents by providing care services for older adults, adults with disabilities, children and families. For more information on services, volunteer opportunities, to take a tour or donate, call 623-584-4999 or visit benevilla.org.
