The day center serves all of the North Shore, largely drawing from Peabody and surrounding areas as well as Chelsea, Revere and and Winthrop. Of course, other communities are always considered, depending on transportation availability.
How is transportation arranged?
The day center contracts with a transportation company for wheelchair and ambulatory transportation. However, many families provide their own transportation, and arrangements can also be made through THE RIDE and other community options.

The daily fee includes all meals, medication assistance, nursing monitoring, assistance with activities of daily living such as dining, walking, bathroom assistance extensive activity programming, and social service support. Showers can be arranged at an additional cost. The day center also offers an attractive enclosed outdoor patio and garden area available for the exclusive use of its participants.

Physical, occupational and speech therapy are provided in a state-of the-art gym by a highly-skilled team of therapists, per physician order. Those who have recently been discharged from short-term therapy can continue their progress on an outpatient basis while attending the day program.
What services are available for those participants with memory loss?
Our staff is trained in the Habilitation approach to dementia care using the 'Caring for People with Alzheimer Disease' program created by the Alzheimer's Association/MANH Chapter. Whether it's a physician or nurse administering medical attention, a rehabilitation therapist working with a client in the gym, or an activities staff member leading a program, each professional has experience in encouraging a client's sense of well-being and independence. Special attention has been given to enhancing the environment with pleasant colors and lighting, and a security system is in place to prevent wandering. A monthly caregiver support group is available to help families cope with their roles.

Most of the participants come for a six-hour day between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. We recognize that many family members are working caregivers, therefore an extended option is available.
