A grant from the East Hill Foundation made it possible for the Dunkirk Adult Day Program to replace program furniture and storage cabinets along with purchasing furniture for the outdoor deck. Included in the grant are new leather recliners and also a lift chair for those with difficulty getting in and out of the recliners. The tables and storage units will be used daily in the activity department. This program furniture will help meet the physical needs of the frail population that the program serves. It is also an attractive update to the homelike setting for the elderly who attend the program.

Chautauqua Adult Day Services offers senior day programs for adults 60 years of age and older who live in the community. The day programs enable seniors to have quality of life through socialization and activity programming. The sites provide breakfast, snack and a hot noon time meal for participants.

There is also a Community Recreation Program that helps seniors participate in outings in the community and the sites offer pet therapy, ceramics, music programs, arts and crafts and much more on an ongoing basis. In addition, the agency also has a “Saturday Program” in Jamestown which helps participants stay involved in community events and out-door recreation.

The Chautauqua Adult Day Services is a not for profit United Way community partner that provides an affordable option for older adults in the community to remain independent and at home.

Chautauqua Adult Day Services, has four sites throughout Chautauqua County located in Westfield, Jamestown, and Dunkirk. One of its sites in Jamestown, the Present Center is a program specifically for older adults with Alzheimer’s disease.
