About the Adult Day Center

Agrace has an adult day care service for people who need help caring for an elderly loved one. The Agrace Adult Day Center is a safe, supportive place for seniors. It is open on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. This freestanding center is centrally located at 1702 W. Beltline Highway in Madison, with easy access from the Fish Hatchery Road and Todd Drive exits on the Beltline.

The Center is open to all seniors who are in need of companionship and help with daily activities. Each day, we engage seniors in activities that can help slow the progression of dementia and reduce cognitive decline. This compassionate, direct care gives a much-needed break to family caregivers. So, even when you cannot be home with them, your loved one can still enjoy:

  • companionship from our staff, volunteers and other seniors;
  • mentally stimulating activities, such as board games, crafts, classes and music;
  • physical activities, like chair yoga and Wii sports; and
  • quality, nutritious meals.

Other services, such as showers and transportation, are offered for an additional charge.

Sample Weekly Schedule at the Agrace Adult Day Center

Designated members of our staff are trained to administer clients’ medications from the written order of their doctor/primary health care provider. All medications given are documented for family members’ reference.


Who can participate?

The Agrace Adult Day Center is a place for any elderly person looking for a social outlet and activities with peers. Participants may have cognitive decline, like memory loss or more frequent confusion, and need extra support and attention while their caregiver or a family member cannot be home with them.

Your loved one does not need to be a hospice patient or have any serious illness to receive care at the Center. It’s a safe, structured, compassionate space where Agrace’s staff support the mental, emotional and physical needs of seniors and people with memory loss.


Who is providing care?

Adult Day Manager Kewana Jamison, RN, oversees care at the Center

Care at the Center is overseen by a registered nurse (RN) manager. The nurse ensures each client’s daily medication needs are met.

The staff also includes trained caregivers, an activities coordinator, volunteers, and a meal preparation chef from the Agrace kitchen. Clients receive nutritious meals, with caregivers providing meal set-up and feeding assistance to meet each person’s cognitive, physical and emotional needs.

“The Agrace Adult Day Center is like home to me, with such wonderful people and this is a safe place for me.”

“After Murray was at the Adult Day Center the first two times he asked if he could go more times per week! I just can’t say enough about Agrace, you called me right away and got things started and the people at the Adult Day Center are absolutely wonderful. I got Murray back and he has become alive again!”

— Lissa - Adult Day Center

“My mother-in-law just gushes about how “nice” the staff is. They potted succulents yesterday and painted the clay pots. She had a blast. There is a woman there who she is friends with who is always worried that her family will not pick her up. My MIL has taken it upon herself to re-assure the woman that they will - over and over again. It feeds her desire to feel needed in a way that we can’t replicate at home. It just continues to be such a good experience and a blessing for us! ”

“In addition to serving seniors who live alone and want support from others throughout the day, the Center is a welcome option for families that need either a regular or an occasional respite from caregiving. We will engage seniors in activities that can help slow the progression of dementia and reduce cognitive decline.”

— Kewana Jamison, RN

“We see this growing population of seniors who want independence and would like to stay in their homes, but oftentimes they need more socialization so they’re not in isolation. ”

— Marcia Whittington, Chief Development Officer
