About Us

Who For

Welcome Friends' goal is to prevent the premature institutionalization of seniors and disabled adults who have a hard time caring for themselves when their caregivers are busy at work.

We provide an environment that enables these individuals to function at their maximum capacity and strengthen their family caregivers' abilities and coping skills.

If you have a loved one who meets at least one of the following admittance criteria...

1. Age 18 or older and reside within a 10 mile radius of our location.

2. At risk of institutionalization due to a dementia or cognitive impairment (ex: Alzheimer's Disease, etc.)

3. Are in need of a during-the-day-care option to alleviate caregiver responsibilities (Require less than 24-hr care)

Our Why

Started in 2007, Welcome Friends Adult Medical Day Center has a mission to provide a place where elderly individuals and medically disabled adults could spend the day receiving the best quality health care and have fun at the same time unlike most other senior care options.
