Bridging the Adult Care Gap
Some adults have physical, social, cognitive, emotional, or health challenges that prevent them from functioning without special assistance. With the right support in place, many can delay or prevent placement in nursing home care.
Adult Day Services is a daytime healthcare program serving adults with a variety of unique needs—including age-related, health-related, or developmental disabilities. For over 30 years, our licensed healthcare team has provided structured therapeutic activities and other assistive personalized services to adults in need—in a safe and compassionate environment conducive to personal and social well-being.
Our primary goal is to maintain or improve each participant’s level of functioning, enabling them to remain within the family or community structure for as long as possible.
Ben Franklin Transit Dial-A-Ride and Mid-Columbia Meals-On-Wheels provide transportation and hot meals paid for by Adult Day Services. Columbia Center Rotary has provided generous funding for many of our client activities.
Aging and Long Term Care (ALTC), and Home & Community Services of DSHS provide ADS with the bulk of client referrals.
