Adult day services provide an individualized and coordinated program of activities. Services are directed at maintaining or improving a person's ability to self-care. This includes health, social and nutritional services. Services are directed toward the achievement of specific outcomes identified after assessment in a service plan. A person cannot receive adult day services for more than 12 hours in one 24-hour period.
Adult Day Services supports families by providing a safe, secure alternative to long term skilled nursing care for adults requiring only intermittent supervision - those persons affected by chronic illness, physical disability, depression, social isolation, and/or memory problems.
Respite Care & Companionship may be reserved as needed any weekday between 7:00am - 5:30pm. Arrangements can also be made for participants to receive help with personal hygiene tasks, dispensing medications plus physical, occupational and/or speech therapy on a referral basis as needed.
