The vulnerable populations that Kingsley House Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) serves includes seniors, 65 and older, and medically fragile adults ages 18 and older. We are currently licensed by the Department of Health to serve 158 participants. Our participants receive the affordable care and supervision they need in a safe and supportive environment.
Adult Day Health Care is a cost-effective way to provide necessary services to vulnerable populations while providing them the opportunity to remain active at home with their families and engaged within their communities. Our program is housed in Kingsley House's recently constructed Patrick F. Taylor Campus, which is an intergenerational shared site for children and older adults providing specialized programs in a nurturing environment. Kingsley House strives to provide fun and meaningful interactions for their young and senior participants. In addition to enhancing community ties and sense of belonging for both the youth and seniors, the benefits of intergenerational activities related to the improved health and well-being of seniors are exponential. As part of daily programming, Monday through Friday, participants are offered opportunities to participate in a variety of therapeutic, recreational, and educational activities.
With your support, we can continue to enhance our program offerings by providing more diverse cognitive activities such as playing games, using a computer, making crafts or participating in social activities. These specialized activities provide the mental stimulation needed to keep senior citizens healthy and active. As reported by the National Institute of Health, “activities that are cognitively stimulating may be the most direct way to enhance cognitive health via structural and functional brain changes,” (Aging Health. Hughs, Dr. Tiffany. 2010 February 1; 6(1): 111–121). A gift from you can support Kingsley House in continuing to enhance the quality of life of our senior participants. Help us to support our family.
