Adult Day Services Program

It is difficult worrying about a loved one being alone during the day. This is especially true if they have medical issues or are feeling socially isolated and depressed.

The Gateways Community Services' Adult Day Service Program (ADSP) is designed for seniors and disabled adults who are looking for that social and cognitive stimulation but may also need health monitoring during the day. Our program can give family members peace of mind while they work or a break from the daily responsibility of care giving. Our staff strives to give every participant a safe place to have a good time.
