The Senior Alive Adult Day Care Program is the only social, educational model of this type in Southeast Missouri and is licensed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The purpose of adult day care is to provide supportive programming during the daytime hours to the well and frail senior adult aged 60 and older. The program provides participants with the opportunity to pursue educational interests, interact socially and continue to access and contribute to the community.

Prior to attendance in the program, a Physician Permission form must be completed and in the participants file. A form is provided for this requirement. This form must be updated yearly. In addition, each participant is required to have a TB Skin Test yearly.
If it is determined that the safety of the participants is in danger due to travel and/or exposure during inclement weather, the Senior Alive Adult Day Program will close for such period of time that danger to participants exists. Each participant scheduled to attend on that day will be contacted personally.
