Adult day care centers are a great idea for older adults who are isolated or lonely or who are unable to manage their day to day activities independently. Senior citizens who would like to mingle and socialize with people their own age enjoy spending time at the day care center. At home, their caregivers are relieved of their duties and can have enough time to take care of household or other chores that may also be competing for their time. Day care centers for adults are designed with various activities that promote the wellbeing of the individual through social activities.
We are open during the daytime hours. Our center creates a cheerful, supportive, and safe environment for the older adults and offers them meals as well. We even accommodate those with special dietary needs and provide nutritious snacks as needed.
Our program is focused on enriching lives of our participants. When evaluating a social adult day center, it is important that you consider services that are being offered. Some of the activities you can expect to find at our center include:
Arts and Crafts – seniors have an opportunity to participate in our “arts exploration program”. Fine and performing arts will be explored thru various monthly projects developed and coordinated by our center’s program director. Participants will be able to expand on their artistic talents thru various activities.

Those who participate in a day care center for adults benefit in many ways. They have a secure and safe place to spend their days, they engage in stimulating and enjoyable activities, and they also get to improve their physical and mental health. Nutritious snacks and meals are served and dietary requirements are taken into consideration.
