Adult Day Services
Adult Day Services
Providing daytime care and support for disabled and elderly adults
We understand that it is difficult when a loved one needs help to function independently at home. Our two state-certified Adult Day Centers provide quality care for elderly and disabled adults and support for family caregivers through a nurturing, compassionate option that benefits participants and family caregivers alike.
What are Adult Day Services?
Adult Day Services are a structured, comprehensive program designed to meet the needs of functionally and/or cognitively-impaired adults. Adult Day Services provide individually-planned service, supervision, social and related support services, and health monitoring in a protective setting during any part of a day, but less than 24-hour care.
- Help elderly and disabled adults remain at home longer and have fewer trips to the hospital
- Assist in sustaining family stability
- Support caregivers in maintaining a system of home-based care
- Enable caregivers to maintain employment
- Lower stress levels for both participant and family members
- Provide an economical alternative to a nursing home
