Adult Day Services: An Affordable & Personalized Approach to Care

This month, we’re celebrating National Adult Day Services during the week of September 17-21, 2018. Since 1988, Tel Hai’s Adult Day Services Program (ADS) has been privileged in assisting hundred of families care for their loved ones.

Let’s take time to learn what ADS is and how it’s an affordable and personalized approach to care:

What is Adult Day Services?

ADS at Tel Hai offers personalized, quality care for adults challenged by physical disabilities or requiring memory support/dementia care, who require daily supervision.  By partnering with family members in the full-time care of their loved one, we provide an affordable care option and much-needed respite for families.

Who can be served in Adult Day Services?

In addition to Tel Hai residents within the continuum of care, ADS is available to individuals from the greater community. Transportation to ADS is provided by Rover Community Transportation for participants living in Chester County.

What does the typical day look like at Adult Day Services?

Within ADS, our aim is for clients to maintain their level of independence, but in a safe and secure environment. From structured and stimulating programming to enjoyable activities like community outings, our highly trained team members—that includes licensed practical nurses—provide individualized attention in a homelike setting. We fill our days with fun events like cooking, pet visitation, intergenerational activities, games, trivia, wellness classes, supervised walks and of course… three delicious meals a day!

How affordable is Adult Day Services compared to other care options?

According to the National Adult Day Services Association, ADS is one of the most cost-effective options in long-term care today. The per-day median cost of ADS in the United States is far lower than other care alternatives, such as home care, personal care/assisted living or long-term nursing care. At Tel Hai, our daily rates are flexible as we offer both full and half-day rates.

Adult Day Services is open 7 days a week from 6:30 am – 7:00 pm. The program is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and funded in part by the Chester County Department of Aging Services.

If you’d like a personal visit, please stop by or contact us. We’d love to meet you!

  1. I am surprised that there is not more of this needed service available in the community. I love the fact that Tel Hai has offered such a full ADS program for some many years. Keep up the great work.
