Day Program for Families Touched by Dementia

The Dorothy and Peter Brown Jewish Community Adult Day Program is a nonsectarian program dedicated to supporting people living with dementia and their family care partners. Our day program is designed to enhance the dignity, self-esteem and well-being of each participant through stimulating programming and socialization, provided in a warm, safe and secure environment. In collaboration with family care partners, the Brown Center helps participants age in place by providing support and respite services to their care partners, while enhancing the participants’ quality of life.
