About Our Centers

Our day centers are an integral part of the long-term care continuum. Involvement can reduce caregiver’s burden, improve participant’s mood and behavior, and prevent hospital stays or nursing home placements.

At Marie Smith Center and Lambert House, you will find structured and engaging evidence-based programs that meet the needs of functionally and/or cognitively impaired adults and seniors. We emphasize abilities and potential rather than disabilities. Our individualized services increase the well-being of participants, their families, and caregivers, and even the community by keeping more of its members actively involved.
