Participation in ALSM’s Senior Adult Living Center programs benefits seniors and their family of caregivers in many ways. Carefully structured activities that cultivate a sense of belonging help friendships develop and grow. We promote physical wellness with a daily exercise program designed to enhance mobility and independence, and use current technology for improving behavioral health.
As a caregiver, your loved one depends on you. This program affords you respite so you may:
- Continue to work or go back to work.
- Rest, relax and revitalize to help you maintain your physical and behavioral health.
- Feel caught-up again, and less frustrated, when you have time to take care of other business, household chores or simply complete personal errands.

They are committed to making sure your family member receives personal care and supervision in a safe, caring and secure environment.
