Adult Day Health

Our Adult Day Health (ADH) programs offer individualized health, wellness, and social supports to seniors who may require nursing treatment or monitoring—supports designed to help them live independently in their home as they age. ADH programs offer a supervised setting where elders can be part of a community for six hours a day, Monday-Friday.

Regular exercise and healthy, balanced meals are essential components of the day programs. Recreational opportunities include arts and crafts, creative writing, poetry, art groups, cooking, group discussions, and health education. Medical services include health screening and monitoring, supervision and administration of medications, assistance with personal care, and rehabilitative therapies. 

Participants meet new friends and discover interests in an exciting and warm environment. Each person chooses from a variety of therapeutic and creative individual or group activities. Outings and seasonal celebrations are offered on a regular basis. Bay Cove is able to provide transportation for participants to and from our ADH program location. 

Our ADH staff consists of nurses, social workers, activities coordinators, and program assistants, all of whom form a coordinated care team well qualified to respond to a full range of participant needs.

Programs

Bay Cove offers four separate ADH programs, all of which include our standard ADH services, specially designed for participants with specific needs.

  • Our Neighborhood Senior ADH is a community-focused group specifically designed to meet the needs of seniors who live in Dorchester. The goal is to unite neighbors from the community, and the service model includes community-centric elements into the service model.

  • Our Vietnamese ADH program is a culturally-oriented program, staffed by bilingual employees, and observant of the cultural customs, foods, and language of the area’s Vietnamese population.

  • Our Behavioral Health ADH is staffed by clinicians specifically trained to address the needs of individuals with behavioral health issues.

  • Our Memory Loss ADH provides a safe, friendly and supportive environment for people with Alzheimer's disease or other memory loss. The program also provides a break for the day-to-day caregivers.
