Welcome to the GrandFriends Adult Daycare Program!
For more than 20 years, the Via Center has provided daycare for our seniors: structured, supervised activities with a safe, affordable and comfortable environment for family and loved ones with dementia or special physical needs. The program is available 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Clients can participate one day a week or up to five days. Socialization, recreation and exercise activities focusing on maintaining independence, dignity and life enjoyment within the scope of individual abilities are provided daily by trained and loving staff. Breakfast, a hot lunch and an afternoon snack are a part of the daily program of activities.
The GrandFriends staff consists of a Medical Assistant, a Certified Nursing Assistant, certified care providers and trained companions and volunteers. They are all dedicated to helping families who are confronted with the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related issues. The program is dedicated to providing care-givers with much needed respite. Family members and friends are able to continue their daily routines knowing that their loved one is in a caring environment that fosters safety and activity.
"Not being able to stay by herself, my mom attends the program full-time while I'm at work. Knowing she's in a safe environment gives me such a sense of security. There are not enough kind words for the place, the people, the security, the meals... everything!" -- Caregiver J. Daughdrill
The program is extremely cost effective, $50 per day for one or more days per week and $55 for a single day.
