Daytime Care for Your Elderly Loved One

Enjoy peace of mind while your loved one stays active and engaged.

Easterseals-Goodwill Adult Day Services provides a unique daytime care option for families with aging parents, an ailing spouse, or family member with dementia or other medical and physical disabilities who is unable to stay home alone safely. Participants spend the day interacting with other adults and involved in activities they enjoy.

The program enables family caregivers to go to work, handle personal errands and appointments, or have a break from round-the-clock caregiving. Being a family caregiver is hard work, and family caregivers do a better job when they take care of their own needs, in addition to caring for an elderly parent or senior family member.

Trained staff members engage participants throughout the day in a variety of interesting and fun activities and community outings, while providing assistance with personal care needs. Individuals can attend for all or part of a day, as many weekdays as desired.

Come for a tour or consider
a 1/2 day visit at no charge.

What does it cost? When are you open?

Adult Day Services is open Monday-Friday from 8am to 4pm, and we will work with families that need care later until 5pm. Your loved one can attend as many or as few hours as you wish. Drop-in care on an as-needed basis is also available.

We are happy to discuss your individual needs, and work with you to design an attendance plan that works for you and your loved one.

Services are offered at a per hour rate of $9.47. This includes nutritious meals and snacks, plus all outings and activities. Transportation within Great Falls city limits to and from the center is available for an additional $3 each way for individuals who spend the entire day. We accept Medicaid, Aware, Inc., SMDI (through Aware, Inc.), private insurance and private pay.

How your loved one benefits

It’s important for seniors to stay active and not become lonely or depressed as they age. A recent study by Johns Hopkins University indicates socially isolated older adults have a higher risk of developing dementia. This CDC article also supports the results of the study.
