Springfield Area Adult Day Service Thanks Senior Garden Contributors

As the air cools and the leaves begin to change color, Springfield Area Adult Day Service would like to extend their thanks to the Council on Aging for the Successful Aging Grant, Bibens Hardware, The Springfield Garden Club volunteers, Lee Soucy, Lynn and Paul Likus, Cathy Buskey, Sue McCausland, John and Maureen McAveeney of Sunshine Acres, and everyone who generously gave of their time and talents to assist with the "Growing A Senior Garden" project.

"This was truly a community project and we want to thank everyone involved. Our participants have enjoyed countless hours in this beautiful garden over the summer months, and we are very grateful," comments JoAnne Bohen, Director of the Adult Day Program.

Springfield Area Adult Day Service, a department of Springfield Hospital, is a planned program that includes a variety of health, social, and support services in a safe, protective environment.

The program serves seniors and disabled adults over the age of 18 who face the challenge of losing their independence by offering an alternative to residential and nursing home care.

Participants include those with Alzheimer's, ambulatory restrictions, confusion, dementia, frailty, incontinence, Parkinson's, and those recuperating from strokes and heart attacks.

The Adult Day program is located at 266 River Street in Springfield, and is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
