Our Adult Day Services Center was created in 1984 by the YWCA of Bethlehem to meet the needs of families in the Lehigh Valley. As one of the Valley’s premier centers, we provide a licensed, therapeutic, social day care program for seniors ages 60 years or older and provides much needed respite to caregivers. The purpose of the program is to avoid early nursing home placement so that older adults can remain with their families for as long as possible. In addition, it is the goal of the program to help caregivers lessen stress, continue to remain employed and to have a chance to revitalize themselves. .
Hours: Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday’s from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please give us a call at 610-867-4669, extension 100 for more information.
