Visit Our Adult Day Center
Catholic Charities offers care options for older adults who require some assistance in order to continue to live safely within the community, rather than in a nursing home or attendant care facility. Our adult day center provides partial and full day service for seniors enabling their caregivers to maintain employment and other family responsibilities.

About Our Program
The Adult Day Services Center provides a safe, supervised setting that meets the varying daily care needs of the participants, while encouraging them to maintain self-help and social skills. Our Center is large enough to offer a wide range of services, yet small enough to respond personally and promptly to individual needs.
The Center provides certified nursing assistants to respond to care needs, varied daily programming based on participants' needs and wants, recreational activities, snacks and lunch in a beautiful, homelike setting. For additional fees, participants have access to on-site specialized bathing facilities, podiatrists, beauticians, and individual counseling sessions.
Adult Day Service participants benefit from the variety of activities, socialization and staff interaction. Participant medical conditions may include: stroke, arthritis, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, as well as developmental disabilities. Services are provided through private pay, State, County or Veteran Administration public benefits or reduced fees based on income eligibility.

Director of Adult Day Services
John, a U.S. Army Veteran of the Vietnam War, and member of our Adult Day Center. In his retirement, John loved to attend veteran’s events. The connection he found among friends and neighbors gave him a community he could depend on. But, as John reached his late seventies, health problems began to make a big impact on his safety and independence. He began to need a walker, and his dementia meant that he relied more on his wife, Carol, to complete tasks that at one time came easily to him. Carol and their son, Michael, do their best to care for John and to honor John’s wish to continue living at home.
To assist the family, the V.A. referred John to Catholic Charities’ Adult Day Center where he could enjoy time away from home each week in a safe and social environment, and his family would have a respite and relief knowing that John is well cared for. The friendly and welcoming staff encouraged John to attend the ADC two days a week. He enjoys his time playing games with the other members and staying engaged. He still loves attending veteran’s events when he can and sharing stories with his new friends at the ADC.
