To many elderly and handicapped residents of Rhode Island, Alternative Adult Care is a "home for the day". It gives adults and seniors in need of daytime care a place to socialize, relax, exercise, learn, dine and participate in several activities.
Caregivers are given time to work, tend to business, or recharge
their batteries, knowing their loved one is well cared for in a safe environment.
Participants are enabled to remain in their community.
Alternative Adult Care Center is open Monday Through Friday, from 7:30AM to 3:00PM. Participants may attend one to five days a week. At least two days per week is recommended for attendance.
The Center does have extended hours in the afternoon until
4:00PM Monday through Thursday
for an additional fee.
