Adult Day Health Program
Our Adult Day Health Program (ADHP) is a medically based community health model for elderly and/or disabled adults. It is designed to enhance the quality of life for the individuals we serve and keep them living with their families or in their own homes in the community. Program participants in the Adult Day Health Program are able to avoid isolation and premature institutionalization. ADHP provides nursing services, medical monitoring, social services, breakfast and lunch, as well as a full range of program activities.
The goals of our ADHP program are to:
- Prevent the emotional and financial costs of premature institutionalization
- Ensure the mental, physical and social well being of elderly and disabled adults
- Encourage and promote independence
Our full time staff includes two nurses who monitor clients’ health, administer medications and work closely with other providers of care. 100% of our clients need medical monitoring daily; a third typically require extensive attention during the day, and one in four on average receives daily medication from our nursing staff. Program nurses are often the first to notice, diagnose and respond to medical issues that might otherwise go undetected.
The Adult Day Health Program (ADHP) is open from 7:30am – 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Clients typically attend from two to five days per week.
