We know what your loved ones need to keep them safe, happy, healthy and dignified because we’ve been part of their lives since 1984.

The Adult Day Services Center of the YWCA of Bethlehem had been helping local families with their senior care needs for nearly 31 years.  We engage your mom, dad, spouse or another loved one through social activities, wholesome meals, and experienced and dedicated staff–at reasonable rates.  Our experienced caregivers know how to engage them through fulfilling activities.

The YWCA of Bethlehem’s sunny conveniently located adult day center is a licensed, therapeutic program that allows older adults to live at home as long as possible and lets caregivers continue to pursue their own active lives.
