Founded in 1984 by Gary W. Steinke, MD; Rose Kleiner, MSW, LCSW; Michael Gilfix, Esq.; and Elayne Brill, Hearts & Minds Activity Center emerged as the first large capacity dementia-specific adult day program in the country. Since its inception, Hearts & Minds has provided services to over 6,000 individuals living with dementia and their families.
As a licensed 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Hearts & Minds Activity Center operates an additional program on site: a childcare that collaborates with its counterpart for daily intergenerational activities. Established in 1992 as a parent cooperative for the young children of members of staff, the childcare has since evolved into a licensed daycare, open to the public for over fifteen years.
