"Creating Moments of Joy..."

Our PLACE MISSION

Our Mission is to improve quality of life by providing a day program of care, social interaction, and therapeutic activities in a safe and nurturing environment to senior adults living with Alzheimer's or other dementia-related diseases. Our PLACE works to support caregivers and care partners through respite, support, education, and resources.

Our PLACE UPDATE

In March we will celebrate our second full year of successfully helping individuals in our community and would like to thank our staff, volunteers and community partners who have worked so hard to make this happen.  We look forward to continuing the expansion of our programs and outreach, as we strive to be the best Adult Day Center in Eastern Tennessee.


During this month we will begin our Phase I expansion which is very much needed to provide an expanded reach into our community. Phase I will be completed in early May. We are also kicking off our Phase II Capital Campaign to fund a second activity area which will give us the capability of better-segregating services based on the advancement of Dementia related diseases. We are targeting FY28 for completion of this phase.


I am very proud to be your new Executive Director and am dedicated to creating many more moments of joy for those involved in our programs. I look forward to continuing to build on our community partnerships in support of those individuals and families facing the many challenges of Dementia related diseases, and excited to be your partner in this journey. 


If you have any questions about how Our PLACE can help your family through our services and support, please contact our Executive Director, Sarah Martin, at (865) 657-7222, or email her at director@ourplacetn.org.

Our PLACE Phase II Capital Campaign

                       Your support is greatly appreciated by the families of those affected...

We would like to extend our heartfelt thank you to the many donors who have assisted us to date, and also the Loudon County Commission for their support. Space constraints have become our main issue due to how participants are progressing through the disease, mobility issues, and resulting activity setup constraints. Based on the challenges in fundraising we divided this campaign into two phases. We can partially address these issues during Phase I, but will need a longer period of time (Phase II) to raise the funding required to help assist more participants. The attainment of  our Phase I goal is allowing us to partially address mobility concerns, expands our current activity area into the back porch, construct a new porch, and expand our outdoor activity area. Attaining Phase II goals addresses mobility & setup issues, plus creates the second activity area which is crucial to our addressing disease progression.

In the last two years of operation we have created many moments of joy for our caregivers and participants. We hope that you will consider helping us assist more of the estimated 7400 individuals impacted by the various forms of dementia in Loudon and Monroe Counties. Our Place continues to provide  assistance to countless families, caregivers and others through our Outreach and inhouse programing. You can help us create more Moments of Joy by participating in our Capital Campaign for the Expansion of Our PLACE!! Learn more about this program.
