Third Age is a specialized program for persons with dementia and/or memory loss of the Alzheimer’s type. Third Age also provides services to physically frail elders or aging individuals who require assistance with activities of daily living. Generally, our participants are over the age of 55 who need supervision and/or assistance in order to perform activities of daily living due to dementia and/or memory loss or physical frailty.
As a Social Adult Day Program and a member of New York State Social Adult Day Services Association, our services are based on the philosophy that each individual has a need and capacity for socialization which does not diminish with age; that socialization helps prevent depression, loneliness, and premature institutionalization; and that supportive services in a caring environment can enable people with functional impairments to live their lives more fully.
The Third Age Adult Day Center is your partner in caregiving!
Who Should Attend Third Age?
Adults who are experiencing a decrease in physical, mental, or social functioning are eligible for the Third Age Adult Day Center. They may be frail or have Alzheimer's Disease or related dementia, which may include behavioral problems such as wandering and difficulty communicating, developmental disabilities, or emotional problems.
Third Age is particularly appropriate for those families who want their loved one to remain at home as long as possible, but are in need of assistance for their care. Third Age Adult Day Center is your partner in caregiving.
