The Amherst Adult Day Services (AADS) program is designed to meet the needs of chronically ill and impaired adults (age 18 and older) who live in the community. Socialization, assistance with personal care and a wide variety of activities help individuals maintain their independence and promote feelings of self-worth.
Amherst Adult Day Services offers families an opportunity to “take a break” from their ongoing caregiving responsibilities.
Individuals attend on a planned basis, which may range from one to five days per week, according to the participant’s and family’s needs.
