Adult day service/respite care is a service providing families and caregivers with peace of mind and the ability to continue working and caring for family, knowing their loved ones are receiving quality care by a trained staff. Adult day service provides social, physical and mentally stimulating activities in a family-oriented setting and meals and transportation provided by FVOAS' partner organization, Voluntary Action Center.
FVOAS offers a professional and compassionate level of community based care for adults who are challenged (dementia, early Alzheimer's, physically, etc.) or who are socially isolated.
