OUR 
MISSION
"We are everyday people making a contribution that will not just change the lives of others today, but will remain as a foundation for those who come after us. This will assure that what we have discovered and accomplished for those with Alzheimer’s disease will not be forgotten, but continue to expand." - Pamela Steinke
TAKE ACTION

Our Focus

Gary W. Steinke, M.D., Rose Kleiner, M.S.W., L.C.S.W., Michael Gilfix, Esq., and Elayne Brill founded Respite and Research for Alzheimer's Disease, a nonprofit corporation, in 1984. In 1986, the Alzheimer's Activity Center was opened in a Willow Glen school site. The center became a designated Alzheimer's Day Care Resource Center by the State of California in 1988, making it the first large capacity dementia-specific adult day care program in the country. In 1991, the center relocated to a newly built, 9,000 sq. ft. facility on Enborg Lane in San Jose, California, where it is currently located.

The Rosa Elena Childcare Center, also a program of Respite and Research for Alzheimer's Disease, brings an intergenerational component to our programs and enhances the agency's ability to meet its goals.

Something almost magical happens when you walk through the doors of the Alzheimer's Activity Center. You know at once that you are in a place where people come first.

Respite & Research for Alzheimer's Disease is an equal opportunity service provider to all persons regardless of, race, sex,color, age, religion, actual or perceived gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, ethnic or national origin, or familial status.

Volunteer your energy, talents and resources to bring inspiration and hope to those who need it.
