Adult Day Care


Adult day care centers provide social, medical and emotional support for those with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. They also afford the caregiver relief from exhausting responsibilities of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Adult Day Centers provide a planned program that includes a variety of social and support services in a protective environment during day time hours.
