The Senior Day Program

The Senior Day Program, often referred to as “The Club”, specializes in taking care of individuals who are aging, have Alzheimer’s Disease or other cognitive issues. Club members socialize, exercise, do crafts, sing and enjoy themselves while their caregivers get time to take care of errands, get some rest, and time to re-energize.

Our experienced staff safely gently encourages interaction between participants that enhances mental acuity, socialization, as well as a feeling of safety and comfort. 

Our new location in the former Bath hospital, in Bath provides a warm, intimate environment with plenty of space for safe social distancing, and a multitude of activities.

In order to ensure safety, we abide by all COVID-19 guidelines and ensure all employees and participants are vaccinated.

Safety, Dignity & Respect

Studies have shown that dementia patients who are able to maintain feelings of dignity and respect are less likely to become depressed and anxious which leads to a better quality of life.  At The Club, we make it a primary focus to remember who the person has always been, find ways to boost feelings of confidence and self-worth, and take the time to empathetically listen to ensure all emotions and feelings are understood. 

Meaningful Activities

Meaningful activities for people who are aging or have dementia can enhance their self-esteem and well-being. Our Adult Day Program Directors take the time to learn about our participant’s interests, needs, and abilities.  Then they create similar projects which can be both enjoyed and achieved with success. 


For many seniors and people with dementia, the world moves too fast and they often feel left behind.  At the Respite Care program, the world moves at a slower, gentler pace. Companionship for seniors is incredibly important, as it is for anyone at any stage of their lives. It promotes better mental health, better physical health, creates new routines, and really, just makes life better. Our Senior Day Program Directors take the time to engage each participant in gentle activities and conversation. Whether it’s enjoying a furry visitor, putting together a puzzle, looking at vintage photographs or having a snack together, our program directors help our participants to deepen their sense of connection with others.

Gentle Exercise

Everyone knows that exercise is especially beneficial to seniors, but it is often difficult to help people with Alzheimers or dementia get the exercise they need to feel energized and healthy.  The gentle exercise activities developed by our Adult Day Program Directors address this concern. The daily exercises are social, engaging and elevate moods, yet they also work to improve flexibility and coordination which reduce the risk of falls.  

A Sample Daily Schedule

9:00am – 9:30am:        Greeting, talking and enjoying a snack

9:30am – 10:30am:      Word games, art projects & other activities

Research suggests that listening to or singing songs can provide emotional and behavioral benefits for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. It is also just plain fun. It is one of our favorite parts of the day.

Loving Environment

A positive environment, conducive to a senior’s comforts and needs, can help reinforce well-being. We know that people with dementia thrive on familiarity. This is why we create an environment of familiar routines and activities, because it allows our participants to feel comforted and calm.


We recognize that many people miss the creative activities they once enjoyed. Reseearch has shown that seniors who engage in creative activities are less likely be become depressed, have lower anxiety levels and overall improved life satisfaction.  Our Adult Day Program Directors take the time to learn what activities were previously enjoyed by our participants and create similar projects which can be both enjoyed and achieved with success.

The goal of the Respite Program is to help.  No one is turned away for an inability to pay.
