Integrating socialization and familiar activities, the program is designed to enhance the quality of life.

A safe and relaxing environment is provided with an emphasis on care support. This includes health screening and monitoring by consulting nursing staff and an individual plan of care for each participant. Support groups provide assistance to participants and families.

The daily rate includes on-site meals and transportation. Funding sources may include county waivered programs, long-term care insurance and other sources. Dedicated staff assist in exploring available funding options.
