HELPING YOU LIVE BETTER

Our CARF accredited Adult Day Service program offers a safe, structured environment for seniors or adults in need of supervised care during weekdays. It also affords family caregivers an opportunity to remain employed outside the home, take care of personal and business needs, or simply have an uninterrupted break from the daily responsibilities of care giving.

Our goal is to maintain or enhance each person’s physical, cognitive and social capacity. In doing so, our clients are able to continue living in their own homes or those of their family caregivers. Our approach to care involves professional, qualified staff in meeting the individual needs of each participant and family.
Adult Day Services
Keep your independence.  The Y is here to help you or your loved ones do just that.  At the YMCA Bettye J.
