Live at home...spend your days with us!

Spend-A-Day provides a day of social and stimulating activities for vulnerable or impaired adults in a medically supervised, home-away-from-home setting. Licensed by the Department of Health and Senior Services as an adult medical day care, we combine skilled services with extensive recreational, educational, and group programming to offer a viable option to in-home, nursing home, or assisted living care.

Why choose Spend-A-Day?

Since 1975, Spend-A-Day has provided a safe, secure environment in which seniors enjoy group and individual activities that stimulate mind and body and provide peer support.

Spend-A-Day participants display improvements in mental and physical health.

The full schedule of activities, comprehensive array of services, and expert nursing care enhances (or maintains) the level of independence of its participants.

Spend-A-Day offers several programs simultaneously to accommodate the various interests and needs of its participants.
