The Danforth Adult Care Response to COVID-19


Choosing the right care for a friend or family member can be demanding.
Making the right choice for a loved one can be a comfort.

The Danforth Adult Care Center is dedicated to meeting the changing needs of adults in our community. Our philosophy is to provide all of our clients with a home-like and caring environment, creating familiarity and a sense of security. The Danforth’s skilled, caring professionals meet regularly with residents, day clients and their families to discuss each individual’s plan of care, interests, and needs. We encourage everyone at the Danforth community to express their thoughts, ideas, and concerns through our resident council.

The newly expanded Adult Day Service program offers a wide range of services for adults who may not need residential care, but desire social interaction or need assistance with some daily tasks such as transportation, bathing, grooming, nutritional and medication management. We invite you to tour our facility and see the quality of care provided to our residents.
