ADS operates the only two free-standing dementia-specific adult therapeutic activities day programs in Shelby County. The ADS staff works with each “Friend” to help each have a good day. Each activity is designed for the individual’s success. At ADS the over 25 activities proposed each day work on all of their functions and senses to maintain their capacity at the highest level. Activities stimulate the fine motor skills, the gross motor skills, cognitive skills, socialization and communication. Through research it is known that therapeutic activities and stimulation slow down the progression of this disease.
