Adult Day Health Center
FCHUM provides services to frail older adults and their families at its Adult Day Center at 9300 Beulah Church Road in Louisville, KY.
The Adult Day Center which started out as a social model Adult Day Center in 1990, has been a state licensed health model Adult Day Center, with a full-time nurse, since 1996.
The Adult Day Center balances cognitive activities with physical activities in a structured fun-filled day. An optional breakfast is offered, along with a hot lunch and an afternoon snack. Activities include exercises, games, music and other entertainment, intergenerational activities, pet visits, and much more.
Individuals coming to the Adult Day Center need supervision because of health or cognitive challenges. Many participants have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other type of dementia; others are recovering from strokes, have problems with balance, or have other health related issues such as diabetes, congestive heart failure or depression.
The Adult Day Center was made possible in part by the generosity of St. Bernard Catholic Church who offered space – a house that had once been a convent – for the first 17 years. In April of 2008 the Adult Day Center moved into its new 4,000 sq. foot specially designed home on the property of Beulah Presbyterian Church. The new facility features 4 large completely accessible restrooms, a large secure outside leisure and recreational area, large dining room, activity room, living room and nurse’s center.ADC Wish List
