Brown Adult Day Program

For Older Adults with Memory Impairment

The Dorothy and Peter Brown Jewish Community Adult Day Program is dedicated
to assisting older adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders to remain able, active and alert.

Our environment is designed to enhance the self-esteem, well-being and dignity of our participants. Through a partnership in caregiving, the program 
enables family members to keep loved ones living at home. We enhance quality of life and reduce the need for paid caregivers for older adults in assisted or senior living settings.

Participants benefit from:

  • Individualized attention and care
  • Socialization and recreation
  • Therapeutic activities
  • Health monitoring
  • Nutritious kosher lunch and snacks
  • Religious and cultural support
  • An engaging place to spend the day

Also available: 
Personal care assistance, beautician, medical and therapeutic services, transportation and extended hours. This program encourages individuals to participate in activities they enjoy. These activities help participants feel independent and successful. Activities include: Arts and Crafts, Entertainment, Baking, Exercise, Music, Dancing, Field Trips, Pets, Drama, Gardening and Holiday celebrations.

Caregivers benefit from:

  • A professional partner in caregiving
  • A break from 24-hour care
  • Flexible program hours
  • Reassurance that their relative is safe and secure
  • Information and referrals about community resources
  • Educational classes
