Welcome to FRIENDSHIP CENTER!
We are a non-profit adult day center where those experiencing memory challenges can participate in cognitive, social, physical and emotional engagement in a beautiful setting amongst friends.
Who we are & what we offer
Friendship Center is a safe and fun place for dependent adults with cognitive and physical disabilities to socialize.
Our staff at Friendship Center are trained in the latest methodology for dementia care and provide a kind, safe, and welcoming environment for all members.
We aim to create a vibrant and engaging community where members can feel loved, accepted, and joyful.
Our center offers a wide range of activities and experiences that encourage members to socialize, explore hobbies, share stories, exercise and savor nutritious meals. Our art studio, music room, and on-going series of live entertainment and professional instruction provide best-in-class offerings for our members while making the space "a safe place to forget". All activities are designed around our members' unique preferences and needs, enabling them to spend their golden years doing whatever it is that makes them happiest!
Our location on Miramar Beach in Montecito, near Santa Barbara on the California Central Coast, is ideal for year-round outdoor activities and experiences. Our members enjoy sunny days on our patio and butterfly garden, nature walks, beach outings, and much more.
Care & Safety
Our center caters to the behavioral and health-related symptoms of dementia. We are a secure facility and our staff are trained to gently redirect worrying, agitation, and wandering. Attending the day program can help our members sleep soundly through the night. We assist with activities of daily living such as eating, walking, sitting and standing, and toileting.
We partner with a low-cost transportation service that can bring members to and from the center, making participation in our programs convenient for members and their families.
