Adult Day Program Information

Established in 1999, the Isabella County Adult Day Program (ADP) provides respite care for seniors and cognitively impaired adults needing assistance or supervision. ADP provides a home-like setting where participants feel comfortable and secure, while enjoying activities designed to enhance memory and self-worth. ADP’s experienced, trained, and caring staff ensures each participant’s safety while being sensitive their unique needs and interests. The program allows the person dignity, respect, and a sense of accomplishment, while giving them the socialization that they may need. Participant’s primary caregivers also benefit from the chance to enjoy leisurely activities, attend appointments, or to take a much-needed break.

“I’m happy to be a part of such a meaningful program.”

“The strength gained from fellowship with others is a strong motive for Senior Citizens like myself and others.

Here are a few examples of group activities: playing table games among the group, trivia, reminiscing, gathering together for a meal at lunchtime, activities tailored to holidays and music ministries.

My wife, whom is also my caregiver, is provided a free time for rest, relaxation or leisure time. The program offers assistance by trained staff with personal care as needed.

I’m happy to be a part of such a meaningful program.”

– James (Jim) Grashaw
