Adult Day Services
Started in 1979, the Adult Day Services Program is designed to support individuals 55 years of age and older living in the community. The day program offers opportunities to socialize and engage in a variety of activities designed to appeal to a broad range of interests and abilities. Several structured activities are offered each day from which participants can choose. Educational programs are offered on topics of interest as well as groups related to specials interests such as crafts, ceramics, horticulture, and music. There are activities related to health, nutrition, and exercise.
