Are you a caregiver for someone with memory loss or who is becoming more physically frail?

The ADULT DAY ACTIVITIES PROGRAM (ADAP) at Riverdale Senior Services is a social-model day program for people who have memory loss or are physically frail. ADAP offers structured activities in a social environment, as well as personal care assistance and supervision. By offering a safe and supportive environment, people with memory loss or physical frailties can maintain their independence in the community, heighten their well-being and self-esteem, and reduce isolation and boredom.

ADAP offers:

  • Daily activities that provide social, mental, physical and creative stimulation
  • A hot home-cooked meal
  • Limited personal care assistance, including mobility, toileting, and supervision
  • Round-trip transportation for those who qualify

ADAP is also an essential lifeline for caregivers. RSS has comprehensive caregiver support services, including bi-monthly support groups for spouses and adult children, and professional support from a team of social workers.

ADAP is funded in part by the New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA).
