Our Adult Day Health Center offers a safe, structured environment for senior adults during the day. It affords family caregivers an opportunity to remain employed outside the home, take care of personal and business needs, or simply have an uninterrupted break from the daily responsibilities of care giving. We opened in 1992 as a social model adult day and was then granted state license to operate as a medical model adult day in 2000. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:30 am-4:30 pm.

Our goal is to maintain and/or enhance each person's physical, cognitive, and social capacity. In doing so, senior adults are able to remain living in their own homes or those of their family caregivers. An interdisciplinary approach to care involves professional, qualified staff in meeting the individual needs of each participant and family.

Here at the Y, we know that developing and maintaining peer relationships outside of the immediate family is so important for our health and well-being. The day-to-day opportunity for socialization affirms each senior's dignity and self-worth.

Many of our participants have memory impairment due to stroke and/or Alzheimer's Disease. A person with such characteristics can benefit from a structured daily environment with mental stimulation that includes mental trivia games, reminiscing exercises, daily reminders, etc. Each day is structured around a variety of activities designed to appeal to and nurture each and every participant.

Whether there is a physical health concern or a cognitive challenge, our program can help. We are able, as a licensed health facility, to provide health care monitoring, basic health services and rehabilitation therapies.

We also provide a daily range-of-motion and flexibility exercise class lead by our trained Y fitness staff, as well as weekly pool exercise classes.
