Does a Person Have to Attend Every Day?
Participants may attend 2-5 days per week. Our hours are 8:00-5:30 to accommodate working caregivers. The majority of participants attend during the scheduled activity program hours of 9:30-2:30.
Who Can Attend?
Individuals who are appropriate to participate in the Rosener House program include people with physical limitations, Alzheimer’s disease, other memory loss or dementia, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, heart disease, social isolation, or other age-related conditions. Generally, participants need some form of assistance with daily living activities or supervision.
Does a Person Have to Live in Menlo Park to Attend?
Rosener House participants come from both San Mateo and Santa Clara counties from as far north as Burlingame, Millbrae and San Mateo through Sunnyvale, Mountain View and Los Altos. Families who choose to drive may come from farther as it may be convenient if a family member works in the Menlo Park area.
What Is the Cost?
Fees are based on the cost of service and consideration of families’ ability to pay. Rosener House is much less expensive than other long-term care options. A limited number of scholarships are available under the Older Americans Act. We have a contract with the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide services to qualified veterans. Long term care insurance may pay for Rosener House. We also offer introductory period grants through the Sequoia Community Care Program for residents of the Sequoia Hospital District. The Alzheimer’s Association and Family Caregiver Alliance offer respite grants to help families access Rosener House services. For information about grants, talk with our social worker.
Is there transportation to Rosener House?
Paratransit service is available in both San Mateo County and Santa Clara County, bringing participants door to door without any need to transfer. Learn more about these transportation options.
