Adult Day Program

In recognition of a need for respite care, Providence offers a unique Adult Day Program (ADP) that provides flexible hours, caregiver relief and meaningful activity for individuals with moderate to severe dementia.

Located in a custom-designed space within Providence, we provide family and client-centric service in a warm and caring environment.
