Adult day centers provide daily services such as socialization, recreation, nutrition, transportation, supervision, basic personal care and self-help training if you are an older adult and are not able to live independently on a full-time basis. These services can be found in most centers. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, basic medical services, nursing services and more intensive personal care may also be available. Additionally, this service provides a respite for your caregivers enabling them to work outside of the home or to take a break from 24-hour care giving, thus preventing caregiver burnout.
All adult day centers are fully accessible to the handicapped and/or the more frail elderly person and are all licensed through the Pennsylvania Department of Aging.
It is advised that any individual interested in the adult day center concept, visit the center of their choice accompanied by a family member prior to initiating an application. Visits should be scheduled by appointment with the Adult Day Center Director at any one of the facilities.
