FSL (Foundation for Senior Living) is introducing ReCreación, a reimagined approach to their long-time adult day programs focusing on the overall benefits of being involved in a program outside of the home for members and caregivers.
Their brand new Diane and Bruce Halle Adult Day Health Services Center will open on Friday, Oct. 1 at 16209 N. 67th Ave., Glendale.
“It’s a program that surrounds not just the person we serve, but their family,” FSL Center Director Carolyn Hutchens stated in a news release.
FSL’s former program focused on the medical services and “day care” aspect, leading caregivers to feel like they were ditching responsibility by sending their loved one to the centers, the program’s news release notes. For many caregivers, this created guilt in an already demanding situation. Members shared that while the program has always been beneficial, the marketing of the program increased their feelings of being a burden on their families.
The new branding aims to ease those feelings, by shifting perspectives from being somewhere a member has to go to somewhere they want to be.
“Here at FSL, we are focused on enriching the lives of the people we serve,” FSL Program Administrator Jeff Tourdot stated. “That’s what it means to us being able to serve you, is that you feel the human connection we are able to provide.”
ReCreación is open to any adult over 18 who is living with a physical, cognitive or developmental disability or medical condition. Through the program, FSL focuses on providing personalized help through activities that will stimulate, engage and inspire a sense of well-being in members in safe and inclusive environments.
The rebrand comes just in time for the grand opening of the Diane and Bruce Halle Adult Day Health Services center in Glendale and serving the West Valley. With more than 10,000 square feet of space, the new center features a young adult activity room, a space for members in the early stages of dementia, and a kitchen area where members can take part in cooking groups through the Empowerment Kitchen program.

FSL ReCreación will be open 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. To enroll in the program, visit or call the site you or your loved one would like to attend.
FSL operates three ReCreación centers in the Valley: in Tempe, in Phoenix and in Glendale. Staff can assist you in completing paperwork and complete an assessment in-person to evaluate the level of care needed. A physician’s order is also required but the staff can help provide guidance for this process as well.
