What Is Adult Day Health Care?
Adult Day Health Care is a term that applies to a variety of programs offering services ranging from active rehabilitation to socialization and health related care. Adults who are unable to function at home without supervision or support are most likely to use Adult Day Health Care.
It covers the gap between the loosely structured activities of senior centers and full-time residential care or institutionalization in a Nursing Home. It is for anyone who cannot be safely left home by themselves. Adult Day Health Care can be the most important tool in preventing or delaying institutionalization.
In a safe, caring environment with a proven structured program, that promotes mental and physical exercise, combined with bathroom assistance, transferring assistance, bathing and nursing supervision, much is done to keep the individual living at home and to function as independently as possible.
More With Dignity and Care
We offer a structured day program designed to keep our members active mentally, physically, and socially. We provide group activities, physical and mental exercises, a light breakfast, full lunch with dessert, an afternoon snack, and incontinence care, all in a comfortable, home-like environment. Nursing services are provided for medication administration and ongoing health assessment, as well as development of a multi-disciplinary, personalized care plans for each member. Additionally, round trip transportation (pick-up and drop-off), personal hygiene (bathing, grooming, shaving, oral hygiene) and beautician services (manicure, pedicure, haircuts, and more) are available.
Comprehensive care. Dignity and respect in every smile.

The question is often asked, “Who should attend an Adult Day Center?” The answer is quite simple: “ANYONE who cannot safely be left alone to manage their time, medication, meals, and activities.” Simply put, “ANYONE who cannot function independently on their own” should attend Adult Day Health Care.
