At Clay Street Center, our members can choose between various stimulating programs throughout the day. We have multiple rooms for all kinds of activities, including dining and socializing, being creative, learning new things, exercising or taking a nap. We also have a wonderful front porch and a garden that provides the opportunity to dig in the dirt or just sit peacefully and admire the beauty.
Health and Wellness
Clay Street Center has an on-site Registered Nurse Director, with over 40 years of experience. A health assessment is performed on admission. Vital signs and weights are taken monthly or more. Our nurse administers medications, monitors chronic health conditions, develops personalized care plans for each member and interacts with other providers on your health care team.
Assistance in the bathroom and with personal hygiene is provided as needed. We have a barber station for hair care and shaving. Our handicap accessible bathroom and walk in shower, funded by a generous grant from the Greenville Area Community Foundation, allows us to provide bathing services. We are also available, by appointment, to assist older adults living in the community with showering.
Showers are $20.00 for Clay Street Center members
$30.00 for members of the community
The Dining Room
The dining room is a place for games, puzzles and socializing, as well as enjoying delicious meals and snacks. It offers a spacious area for activities, and the opportunity to make new friends with other members and our many volunteers.
We have a Library Lady who visits regularly and introduces us to wonderful books. We often have musicians and vocalists who share their talents with us. Interacting with others and having fun are part of every day at Clay Street Center.
Thanks to a generous grant from Greenville Area Community Foundation (GACF), Clay Street Center has a classroom for daily activities and enrichment opportunities. Memory stimulation, educational and interactive programs help keep people engaged and interested in the world around them. Partnering with educators and other community members provides meaningful new experiences on a variety of interesting topics, including art, music, history and travel.
Our members exercise every day to improve strength, balance, and well-being. Group exercise, a walking track, a NuStep cross trainer and chair-zumba class are just a sampling of the physical activities offered. Members also enjoy walks outside on the Flat River Trail, weather permitting. Research shows that regular exercise improves physical strength and balance, helps reduce falls, decreases stress, improves mood and sleep and can slow the progression of dementia and Parkinson's Disease.
Lunch and Snacks
The staff serves a hot lunch and two nutritious snacks each day. Our members say "The food is delicious!" Socialization is enjoyed during the meal. We have fun celebrating birthdays, holidays and any other memorable occasion with a party and special dessert.
A Cozy Corner
We have two rooms that offer a cozy place for reading and relaxing. There are a variety of books and magazines that our members can enjoy. This also makes a great space for an afternoon nap or some quiet time.
