“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” -Albert Camus
Friendship Adult Day Center creates a customized program of individual and group activities that takes into account the individual needs of each participant. Activities are designed around participants’ interests and abilities. To this end, we offer 2 separate tracks so that both seniors and people with mental challenges can feel at home.
Our activities are innovative, diverse and varied, offering participants a variety of options to choose from.
Every day at the Center brings another fun and engaging activity, including:
Friendship Adult Day Center has a unisex beauty salon on premises, staffed by outside beauticians. Registrants can have their hair cut and styled and can even get a manicure.
The game room, located on premises, is complete with a ping-pong table, a pool table and an electronic indoor basketball game. Nothing fosters friendship like a friendly (or even slightly competitive) game of ping pong or pool. At the same time, participants develop focus, concentration skills and hand eye coordination.
The movie theater has surround sound and comfortable double couches and a large movie screen which is perfect for watching a new movie with a new friend, or an old movie with an old friend.
The library is filled with books from bestsellers to classics. There is also a quiet area with comfortable seating where participants can relax at read at their leisure.
With free internet access, participants can utilize the computers in the computer room to type a letter, play computer games, or merely surf the net.
Staff encourage participants to engage in carefully planned moderate exercises that are modified to meet the individual’s physical abilities.
The Center frequently brings in entertainers and special performers to put on shows and entertain participants. Previous entertainment has included, jugglers, magicians, musicians, and clowns.
The Center takes participants off site on day trips to museums, libraries, parks, entertaining shows, as well as on frequent shopping excursions.
