Our Mission

Since 1982, the Coastside Adult Day Health Center’s mission has been to keep people as healthy, active, and independent as possible, when advancing years or physical/mental conditions call for extra care and attention.

Our Goal

For the past forty years, Coastside Adult Day Health Center has been an integral part of the community, providing high-quality care and support to the frail, elderly, and disabled. Our goal is to help our participants maintain their health, independence, and well-being, and to provide them with the care and support they need to live fulfilling lives.

Our programs are designed to be person-centered, providing activities and services that are tailored to the unique needs and abilities of each participant. Our team of professionals work closely with participants, caregivers, and physicians to provide a supportive and nurturing environment.

In addition to our health services, we also offer a range of congregate services that allow our participants to socialize and have fun while receiving the care and support they need. Our programs are designed to promote physical and mental health, and to help participants maintain their independence and quality of life.

We are committed to providing high-quality care and support to the adults in our community, and we are proud of the positive impact that we have had on the lives of our participants. We look forward to continuing to serve the needs of our community for many years to come.
