Friendship Center provides innovative activities and programs that honor individuality, promote socialization, and foster a compassionate community for aging adults. Caregivers receive respite, support, and education, enabling them to achieve balance in their lives.
Friendship Center is a beautiful adult day program that offers supervised, person-centered activities for adults living with dementia or other cognitive challenges. We offer a wide range of outdoor classes, activities and experiences, allowing its members to socialize, explore hobbies, exercise, and engage in various engaging experiences through one single program. The staff at Friendship Center are trained in the latest methodology for adult day services and provide a kind and welcoming environment for the members. As a beloved community resource, we aim to always maintain a vibrant and engaging community where members can feel loved, accepted, and at home. As a result, caregivers and family members receive peace of mind knowing their loved one is spending their days somewhere safe and enjoyable!
Friendship Center is licensed by Community Care Licensing as a social model adult day program. As a social model, meaning we do not provide onsite medical care, we are able to design a person-centered program based upon who attends our program. We have retired doctors, teachers, veterans, moms, poets and more...each member of our program is recognized for their individuality and celebrated for all that they have accomplished in their lives.
Our team understands the challenges that come with someone's cognitive decline and the impact it can have on their families. Through open communication and ongoing dialogue, Friendship Center supports families and friends of our participants throughout their caregiving journey.
