The Salvation Army Serendipity Adult Day Services is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of adults with cognitive and functional impairments. Throughout the day, multiple simultaneous activities occur such as exercise, music, socializing, crafts, games, picnics and walking.  All are tailored to meet the needs, interests and skills of those attending.

Program hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Participant schedules are arranged according to individual and family needs.  A hot lunch and two snacks are provided under the direction of our registered dietician consultant.  The Facility RN assists with medication administration and health assessments.

Our Philosophy

We respect the dignity of our participants and provide them care and compassion.  We are committed through our program of health, social and therapeutic activities to the independence and well-being of older persons, as well as to the provision of predictable respite for caregivers. 

We follow the philosophy of Person Centered Care which recognizes that individuals are not defined by disease or disability but by their uniqueness as human beings. We value each person's abilities and acknowledge their contributions.  As such, the need for love, comfort, inclusion, identity, occupation and attachment are respected as universal needs throughout life.  Activities are focused around the strengths and interests of the individual. Serendipity incorporates these universal needs into every day programming to ensure each guest has many successful interactions throughout their day.

Serendipity's staff of professionals respects our participant's age, beliefs, culture, values and life experiences while encouraging meaningful interaction.

"They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel." ~Carl W. Beuchner

Serendipity Scholarship

Unfortunately, many who would benefit from adult day services cannot afford them. To ensure that as many people as possible can participate in Serendipity, we offer our services on a sliding fee scale, based on income. To keep up with this need we rely on support from caring community members.

We invite you to consider sponsoring a week, month or year for a client in need. Your contribution will be designated for our scholarship fund to ensure that no one is turned away from Serendipity because of inability to pay. Please consider making a gift to the Serendipity Scholarship fund today.
