Care During the Day, Home at Night

Day Services are a caregiver’s first option for keeping their family together.

Adult Day Services are community-based services that support both the medical and social needs of individuals who are living at home, but need daytime assistance for their health and safety.

Each of our Day Services centers offers a unique set of services to meet your needs in a friendly neighborhood setting. You’ll find warm attention, social activities, and compassionate care for those with a disability or who are aging, as well as personal attention to daily medical routines. A choice of activities, exercises and social interaction helps maintain physical and mental health and makes it possible to remain living at home.

Your family member is safe, socially energized and receiving needed nutrition and medical attention during the day.

Day Services support the whole person and actively coordinate with participants, caregivers and primary care physicians.

Tony is active, plays bingo, and spends time with his new-found friends.

Before he was a year old, Tony suffered a traumatic brain injury. By 21, his parents passed away and Tony was welcomed into his sister Connie’s home. Taking care of him for the last 46 years has been a family affair requiring constant attention and little respite. Tony was often bored having little to do at home.

At 67 he now wakes up each day at 6:30, eager to go to the Meals on Wheels Orange County ADH center. Tony has learned how to take a city bus to go to the store or get a haircut by himself. Connie is happy hearing the highlights each evening: “I know he is safe there. He will have lunch, do his exercises, and receive his daily calcium. I am so grateful.”
