Strouse Center Respite Care, An Adult Day Program

Open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am - 5:30 pm

Constant caregiving can bring considerable stress, because the caregiver’s focus is centered on the one needing care. Very often we see that when relief is given with daily routines, allowing the caregiver(s) more time for themselves, the relationship strengthens. Strouse Center Respite Care allows the primary caregiver a reprieve from his/her duties by offering companionship, supervision, and assistance to elderly persons and those with Dementia and other cognitive impairments. We provide caregivers a well-deserved break and their loved one a chance to participate in a socially stimulating program outside of the home.

Our staff assist with activities of daily living (ADLs) including: eating, walking, transferring, toileting and showering (on site shower available). We also offer activity pursuits such as: exercise programs/physical activities, creative endeavors, leisure time, educational programs, service and community involvement opportunities, etc.

A nutritious lunch is also served to our clients from our on-site kitchen.


Our current clients have this to say about their experience with the Strouse Center:



“We think that the services offered at the Strouse Center are really thought out so that they can meet the needs of a wide variety of clients. We found Laura to be organized, very capable and she really connects with our mom. They assessed Mom’s needs and our needs and we were easily able to work out a plan. The cost is very reasonable and lunch is included at no extra charge. This provides a great opportunity for running errands, having a date day or just relaxing at home. Laura supervises Mom and engages her in activities that she enjoys. She also helps with bathroom duties and tracking her fluid intake. There are several different areas in the center; a tv area, a cozy sitting area with recliners and an aquarium, etc. We would recommend the Strouse Center to any caregivers with the confidence that they would be satisfied with the service.”
