Adult Day Health Programs help seniors and younger adults with disabilities stay mentally and physically active and on track with their wellness.   ADH Programs support independent living and community connections.  Members spend the day in a friendly and caring community, with access to high quality health services and monitoring, while enjoying enriching activities and social programs, and then head back to the comforts of home each evening.  Adult Day Health (ADH) services are funded by the state and other insurance providers or privately.  ADH Programs benefit caregivers by enabling them to remain in the workforce and receive respite, education, and support groups.

Testimonial: “My mother loves the adult day health program and her new friends.  She wants to share everything and feels energized when she returns home. It’s like having a new family.  The program has given her a new purpose and makes her happy.” – Mary, daughter of an adult day health program participant
