Adult Day Services Program



WISE Center YMCA Branch Senior Services

The WISE Center YMCA Branch impacts the lives of people with physical challenges and memory impairment and their caregivers by providing a warm, loving and supportive environment with dedicated staff so that each can live life to the fullest. We are committed to the idea that each person, despite challenges, can continue to discover, learn, create and flourish and not be defined by their limitations.

The Gateway Family YMCA offers a program which provides care and support to the elderly and challenged individuals and their caregivers through our WISE Center YMCA Branch. The WISE Adult Day Services Program provides families with peace of mind and special caring environments for their loved ones. Free family memberships are provided to full time families participating in the WISE Adult Day Services Program. The Gateway Family YMCA partners with your family to care for your family members, and support the entire family through membership, programs, services and seminars.
