The Alzheimer’s Day Care Resource Center (ADCRC) allows memory-impaired and/or socially isolated senior citizens to spend their day in a caring, supportive environment. ADCRC’s goals are to delay or prevent nursing home placement, to provide a program meeting each client’s needs, and to assist clients in achieving better management of incapacitating symptoms of dementia. Daily ADCRC activities include lunch and snacks, arts and crafts, and group therapy. English and Spanish support groups are also available for family members of ADCRC participants.
