National Adult Day Services Week | September 18 - 24
This week is set aside to recognize the importance of our ADS services, the clients who attend our programs and the dedicated staff in our program. We currently have a total of 96 clients participating in our Adult Day Services. These clients attend services in 2 different locations (Kingsway Dr. and Thompson Rd.) and in 3 different programs.
At our last survey, 100% of clients were satisfied with services; this definitely says a lot about our program! That satisfaction is a direct result of the dedication of our wonderful staff.
