Caring Days, an adult day care center, bridges the gap between independent living and highly restricted care. It provides a secure and happy environment for our clients and carefully planned activities to keep them using their cognitive, language, social, and motor skills.
In 1994, members of First Presbyterian Church recognized the need for adult day care for those experiencing memory loss. Currently, 21 congregation of various denominations work together to provide this program. They incorporated into a group called Caring Congregations. Their first project, Caring Days Adult Day Care, opened on March 10, 1997.
Caring Days is the only
adult day care in the State of Alabama and one of only 19 programs in the U.S. who have been recognized as a Dementia Care Program of Distinction by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
In 1998, at the age of one, Caring Days won the prestigious LOTUS Award.
This award is presented annually by the Women's Committee of Spain Rehabilitation
Center in Birmingham, Alabama. It is given in recognition of outstanding contributions
toward improving quality of life for people with disabilities. In 2000, Caring Days
proudly became an agency of United Way of West Alabama.
