The Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center plans to expand its health day care services for the elderly with a $220,000 grant. The money from the Archstone Foundation will help the center buy furniture, hire more nurses and increase subsidies for low-income patients who use the center's weekday services, said services program director Nancy Bosnich. The day care program offers physical and speech therapy for elderly people who live alone or suffer from physical problems or memory loss.

With the turn of a shovel, construction began this week on the new Acacia Adult Day Services center at Acacia Parkway and 7th Street. The 5,000-square-foot facility, to be completed by September, will enable the center to provide day-care services to 50 frail, elderly clients. About 40 clients are now served by the center. Acacia Adult Day Services has been using the United Methodist Church of Garden Grove as its center for the past 17 years.

Acacia Adult Day Services Center is one step closer to finding a permanent home. The center, a day-care facility for the frail elderly, is now housed at a church but has outgrown that space, officials said. The City Council on Tuesday night gave approval for the center to build a 12,000-square-foot facility on about two acres along Acacia Parkway. The Acacia Parkway property held Garden Grove's first City Hall, a 1920s-era converted schoolhouse that was demolished last year.

About 7,000 severely handicapped people in Orange County will be left with no financing for their care and shelter if a state budget is not signed by Friday, officials announced Monday. The private, nonprofit Developmental Disabilities Center of Orange County, one of 21 centers statewide that distribute state funds for the severely handicapped or mentally disabled, would be forced to close Friday because state law does not authorize IOUs for private agencies, center officials said.
