Adult Day Services | The Gateway Family YMCA

Adult Day Services

The Gateway Family YMCA offers a program which provides care and support to the elderly and challenged individuals and their caregivers through our WISE Center YMCA Branch.

The WISE Center YMCA Branch impacts the lives of people with physical challenges and memory impairment and their caregivers by providing a warm, loving and supportive environment with dedicated staff so that each can live life to the fullest. We are committed to the idea that each person, despite challenges, can continue to discover, learn, create and flourish and not be defined by their limitations.

Virtual WISE Center Program

In this virtual version of our WISE Adult Social Day Program, WISE staff will provide daily activities, information, and support to your email; weekly social work support by phone or email; weekly live virtual Zoom activities for groups and individuals, recorded activities accessible online or on DVD (by request); arrangements for home drop-off of materials or activities for those in need; and telephone availability of WISE staff 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.  Participants will be notified of weekly events by the WISE Center team with links to register for any events you are interested in.
