    Adult Care Programs at SMCH

Are you tired and need some help? Are you torn between the need to work and the need to provide quality care for someone you love?

SMCH proposes a win-win situation that can benefit everyone involved; affordable adult care by the hour, available seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. We have 45 years of experience specializing in care for the mature adult with chronic illness including dementia and Alzheimer's related disease.

Our adult care program offers relief for the primary caregiver.
No single person can possibly achieve everything alone. We are here to extend a temporary reprieve, which will provide a chance for rest and relaxation, or the ability to work with less stress.... all while your loved one is in our experienced care.

We offer a program tailored to suit your needs.
Our program is available 24-hours per day, 7 days per week. Day or nights, you custom design the program days and hours to fit your needs. Enrollment begins as low as 12 hours per week on a regular committed schedule. Enroll and use our our drop-in and holiday service.

Our many activity programs are aimed at boosting spirits, reducing dependency, and exercising the mind and body. Our dog provides lots of love and companionship, while many love to relax with our fish, watch and listen to the birds in one of our aviaries or observe the antics of the outdoor squirrels. Participants have the opportunity to interact socially with peers and share in stimulating activities designed to support a plan of individual and personal needs.

Our licensed nursing staff will monitor and give medication as ordered by physician, work closely with doctors and will offer instruction and training when needed. Physical, occupational and speech therapies are available for those who meet the criteria.

You are always welcome. Feel free to visit for more information.
