Most notably, Alzheimer's Services also provides Charlie's Place activity & respite centers in Baton Rouge and Gonzales. Charlie's Place is is a program for individuals with early to mild stage Alzheimer's and dementia-related disorders designed to provide cognitive stimulation and social interaction while giving caregivers a much-needed break. Charlie's Place equals quality care at its best. The program offers a non-threatening, home-like experience, where participants can enjoy a purposeful, six-hour day with a host of activities to stimulate cognition and socialization. A complete listing of our programs and resources can be found on our website: alzbr.org.
