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. The specific program goals are as follows:

  • Increase independence and self-reliance
  • Assist senior adults in remaining in their homes
  • Prevent premature institutionalization
  • Increase resource accessibility

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services licenses the Senior Alive Adult Day Program.
