The Glade

Surrounded by friends

The Glade is an on campus adult day center created in 2006 to provide Glenaire residents and people from the Cary community who are living with the early stages of dementia and/or other age-related challenges with a place to spend their day. The Glade is a social model day center for individuals ages 62 and older who are in need of socialization, stimulation and structure. The spontaneous laughter and positive conversation combined with the talents and caring nature of our staff create the core of what makes The Glade a special place. 

The Glade provides a structured setting Monday through Friday from 7:30am - 5:30pm. Residents and their families can make arrangements for participation from one to five days a week. Participants of The Glade benefit from a variety of services.



  • Participation in recreational and social activities
  • Involvement in education and cultural programs
  • Assistance with personal care
  • Enjoyment of a nutritious lunch and healthy snacks


With participation in The Glade, your loved one will have the opportunity to make new friendships. They will be engaged in meaningful activities that will help them experience a feeling of validation and increased self-esteem. While your loved one is enjoying their day at The Glade, you can re-engage in your own life. Spouses, children or caregivers can return to their regular work schedule or gain some needed respite and relaxation. Everyone enjoys a benefit!
