Welcome to Thelma's Place, a community of caring..... one mind at a time.

Thelma's Place is a nonprofit resource center, as well as a state-approved Medicaid Facility, that serves seniors and families in our communities affected by and living with memory loss, including Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias. Being a nonprofit, we hold several fundraisers throughout the year in order to continue providing respite care. In addition to our fundraising efforts, we also rely on community donations as a supplement to our operating expenses. We can also accept vehicle donations - if you would like to donate a vehicle, please call Ellen at 503.260.7595.
