Our Adult Day Care is a safe and happy place where the elderly and people with disabilities come each day so caregivers and family members can continue to work and enjoy a much needed break. The Adult Day Care Center is located at 5000 Lakewood in Waco, Texas in the Meyer Family Intergenerational Center. The center is open from 7:30 AM to 6 PM, Monday through Friday and provides nursing care, healthy snacks and meals served from our restaurant-style kitchen, transportation to and from home, fun activities, social interaction, exercise programs and more.
Bingo, domino tournaments and music entertainment alternate with movies and popcorn. Birthdays are celebrated complete with cake and ice cream. Arts & crafts projects, sing-a-longs, exercise and visits from wonderful guests. (ie: Waco Fire Department, the Cameron Park Zoo, The Gospel Sons, and many more.) Of course, there is always quiet time to watch the birds in the aviaries or the aquarium fish, watch TV or just sit and visit.
Some of the favorite times for all are spent on field trips to local attractions.
They’ve had fun bowling, going to the movies at the Hippodrome, visiting the zoo and fair. They even took charge of the planning and work involved to have a car wash to pay for their expenses.
Above all else, the staff and volunteers at the Adult Day Care show love, respect and honor the dignity of those in their care.
“As a mother of a child with disabilities, Friends for Life has changed my life. Because their superior care, I can continue working knowing that Jenna is not only safe but having fun with her friends during the day. I’ve tried other facilities, and believe me, there is nothing like Friends for Life.” – Pamela Thomason
