Family members see all the things their loved ones can’t do. We see all the things they CAN do.”
– Sharon O’Connor, Director of Iona’s Wellness & Arts Center
Adult day health services provide older adults living with chronic conditions individualized therapeutic, social, and health services during the day.
At Iona, we call our adult day health service the Wellness & Arts Center because best practices and our own experience confirm that a model focused on well-being and creativity lifts spirits, builds confidence, and stimulates cognitive function. At the same time, our approach also reduces depression and hospitalizations.
Iona’s Wellness & Arts Center provides your older family members a reason to get up in the morning, enjoy activities, and make new friends, all while under the care of compassionate nurses and other staff. At the same time, as a caregiver you will find peace of mind and much-needed respite from caregiving which, in turn, will give you more energy to care for your loved one.
Fun activities, health assessment, art therapy, and friends to have lunch and laugh with — all in our spacious and cheerful center. Please contact us today and tell us how we can be most helpful to you.
