Adult Day Services programs offer community-based, supportive care designed to meet the needs of adults who require help with daily living activities.  The programs give families peace of mind, knowing that their loved one is being cared for in a safe and compassionate environment.


Adult Day Services can help improve the quality of life of those who attend and help each person function at their best.  If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, Adult Day Services can be of benefit to both you and your loved one.


  1. Do you think your loved one is unhappy or bored at home all day?
  2. Are you concerned about your loved one's safety at home?
  3. Do you want help to keep your loved one home as long as possible?
  4. Does your loved one seem depressed or have no one to talk to?
  5. Are you working and need the relief of professional, cost-effective care?
