Generous Donation from Indian Mound Golf Club Supports Adult Day Center

October 02, 2019

Center Conway, NH -- Wayne Grenier, Assistant General Manager of Indian Mound Golf Club, recently organized a fundraiser at Indian Mound Golf Club in Center Ossipee that raised $1,300 to support dementia care for guests of Mount Washington Valley Adult Day Center. The donation is the start of a scholarship fund that will assist those unable to pay for services provided at the Adult Day Center.

“We set rates to be affordable at $75 for a 5-hour visit and $12 for each additional hour. Medicaid, VA, Long Term Care Insurance and private pay options are available but still some without insurance may struggle to pay so we wanted to start to build a scholarship fund for those who need assistance,” explained Sue Ruka, Memorial Hospital’s Director of Elder Health Services and Population Health.

The Mount Washington Valley Adult Day Center celebrated its grand opening last month. The state-of-the-art, 14,000-square-foot facility located off Route 113 in Center Conway provides therapeutic and recreational activities, transportation, meals, nursing services and evaluations, social services and geriatric health navigation services for those with memory loss and other cognitive impairments. Support and educational services are also provided for caregivers to help them be successful in supporting their loved ones.

“I believe the Adult Day Center is a great program for the Mount Washington Valley community,” said Wayne Grenier. “I lost my dad to Alzeimer’s and was happy to support the center with a fundraiser.”
