Community Based Services The St. Camillus Adult Day Health Program is a medical model day program whose mission is to assist adults in maintaining their optimum independence in the community. The Adult Day Health Program offers nursing services, rehabilitation therapies, personal care, case management and recreational socialization. The Center is open Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 4 pm. 


New Possibilities for Independence
Established in 1971, the St. Camillus Adult Day Health Program was one of the first medical day programs in New York State. In keeping with that same pioneer spirit, our program has continued to expand and to develop an array of services designed to enable adults with medical problems to live in their home as independently and for as long as possible. This is accomplished by developing a comprehensive individualized plan that coordinates our medical day program services with any additional community services needed to meet this goal.
In addition to the provision of vital services for the individual, the program can offer education, support and a respite for those caring for their loved ones at home. The Adult Day Health program allows family members the chance to take care of themselves, knowing their loved one is being well-cared for in a safe environment.

In April 2013, the new Social Adult Day Health Program opened. The mission of the program is to assist adults with neurological impairments, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and chronic illness, such as Parkinson’s disease in maintaining their optimum health and independence in the community. The goal of this program is to enable persons with neurological conditions to obtain support and develop strategies to enhance their ability to remain living at home.
