  • Adult Day Services provide a warm and secure environment for older adults who need care during the day because of physical or cognitive impairments. With three convenient locations, the Adult Day Services programs offer an important respite for caregivers and compassionate care for older adults.

  • Chore Connection links community volunteers to low income older adults who need help to stay in their own homes. For many older men and women, volunteers are the link that makes independence possible.
