Over 30 Years

The Adult Day Program of Jewish Senior Services has over 30 years of experience as a key resource for seniors in southern Connecticut. The program serves individuals who may be experiencing physical and/or memory challenges and are in need of opportunities for socialization and recreation. The Center also provides caregivers with respite support so they can work or pursue their own interests or responsibilities.

Our Philosophy

Our Program’s philosophy is to meet the individual’s medical needs within a socially stimulating environment. Clients are able to remain living in their own homes much longer as a result of their participation and support services provided within the Program. By offering different levels of nursing services, rehabilitative therapies, care management, therapeutic recreation, socialization, and interactive programs we are able to ensure a successful experience for each participant.

Services available to participants at the Adult Day Program include:
