    Dedicated to supporting individuals and their families affected by memory loss

  • A day program you can trust

    Adults with memory loss need activities to stay their healthiest. And their caregivers need an occasional break.


    Give your loved one the best care available in a supervised, supportive setting with engaging activities, meals, and social time - then have them return to the comfort of home in the evening.

    What is an adult day center?

    An Adult Day Center is not a nursing or assisted living home. Rather, it's a day program offering a variety of activities and social opportunities for older adults age 60 + with memory loss.


    You may want to enroll your family member in an adult day center if:

    • You want your family member to be supervised while you work
    • Your family member needs meaningful activities and socializing within a community
    • You just want a little free time

    Is your senior ready?

    Sometimes convincing your senior to try an activity program is difficult. Adults with memory problems may feel they already lack control over their lives and be uncomfortable with or scared of change. But once seniors get into the new routine of coming to Golden Horizons, they start enjoying themselves again.


    Check out these helpful guides to start the conversation with your senior.
