The Adult Day Center (ADC) is an affordable adult day care program that focuses on providing respite to family caregivers and quality care to aging loved ones with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive impairments. ADC provides a supportive day care environment that assists seniors in reaching and maintaining their highest level of cognitive function. The program is designed to keep seniors independent and living outside of assisted living and nursing homes for as long as possible, and providing a much needed break for their family caregivers.
ADC’s motto is "Celebrate living in the moment!" Many of the senior participants consider ADC their second home and call it "The Club." ADC provides a full day of activities, Monday through Friday from 8:00am- 5:00pm, to stimulate and maintain cognitive and physical abilities.
