Eldergarden is an Older Adult Day Service program, which offers a community based alternative to long term care placement and in a more cost effective manner.  Eldergarden is designed to improve the quality of life of individuals with functional impairments.  There are many benefits to a day services program; specifically, the program allows individuals to remain in their own homes and provides relief for caregivers. Transportation can be arranged through public transportation or Avenues transportation.

There are three main components of our day program:

  • Quality personal care in a safe, supportive environment
  • Therapeutic recreational activities
  • Socialization and stimulation

  

Services are provided with dignity and respect in a caring, stimulating environment.
