Comments from Family Members of ADHC Registrants:
"The Adult Day Health Care program is a very important part of our lives. My daughter truly enjoys all the staff, and other people she shares the program with. The program helps me a lot so I can keep my part-time job. It is very nice to start the day so upbeat."
"I think Adult Day Health Care has been great for my mother. She had gotten so she didn't do much of anything except sit in a chair. Now she gets up and goes almost every day. It is good to see her up and around."
"I feel Adult Day Health Care has helped my husband a great deal. He has much more self confidence than he had when he first came in. The staff has made him feel useful and worthwhile. A great deal of love is shown to all the registrants. He truly looks forward to coming in each day."
