With two Adult Day Service centers and a 40+ year history of caring for the community, Neighborhood House is more than just supervised care for older and disabled adults, it’s a way to connect with a rich legacy and vibrant community.
Programs for adults support the physical, cognitive and emotional health of clients. Services are available on a sliding fee scale, making them affordable to those who need them most. Neighborhood House is also the only Adult Day Service program in Salt Lake County that contracts with the Veterans administration for services.
Neighborhood House provides door-to-door transportation, nutritious meals, field trips, medication management, and daily activities to support physical, cognitive, and emotional health. Engaging activities, interactions with staff and regular meals can help older or disabled adults maintain or stabilize their physical and mental health, while also providing a valuable respite to their caregivers. Neighborhood House Adult Day Services are open Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and centers are located near downtown Salt Lake and Cottonwood Heights. The average client at Neighborhood House is 80 years old and has Alzheimer’s or dementia. Younger adult clients have typically experienced a traumatic brain injury or stroke and are in need of supervised care on a temporary or more permanent basis.
Monthly service projects at Neighborhood House get adults involved in giving back to the communities they are a part of and include preparing care packages for troops overseas during Halloween, delivering donations to local shelters, and tying blankets for children in need. These service projects, and Adult Day Services at Neighborhood House as a whole, are designed to be accessible to those with a range of physical and cognitive abilities. Service projects cultivate a feeling of usefulness among clients and can help improve mood and behavior.
Adult Day Services at Neighborhood House also feature intergenerational activities, helping to reduce the isolation that many older and disabled adults may feel. Activities include arts and crafts, simple games, and holiday related events with children.
