Philosophy Of Care
Adult Day Services provides person-centered care for adult in families in need of assistance taking care of an older adult in their home. Our approach to care respects and values each participant and seeks to maintain the personhood of the individuals. We offer a friendly and stimulating environment adjusted to meet the needs of each unique individual. ADS provides the opportunity to maintain the highest level of functioning possible by promoting physical, social, emotional, mental, and cognitive health. We also give caregivers the opportunity for time away, while knowing their family member is in a safe and caring environment. Services are provided without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or religion.
Professional Faculty and licensed staff members provide supervision to monitor health and well-being; assist with personal care and ambulation; and encourage an optimal level of functional ability and quality of life.
Our activities and programs give the adults the opportunity to develop confidence, self-esteem, and self-expression while building on and maintaining their skills. We encourage you to schedule a tour to observe us.
