Over the course of the year, registrants will undertake a variety of activities in support of other community organizations and initiatives as a way to say “thank you” for the support the St. Luke ADHC Program has received since opening in 1993.

The most recent “Act of Kindness” saw the ADHC Program host a blood drive with the American Red Cross at St. Luke.

“20 Acts of Kindness” efforts have included a donation of homemade pet treats to the Oswego Animal Shelter, a bake sale benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network and a food drive that benefited Human Concerns,” said Sherry Harrison, St. Luke ADHC program director. “Our registrants have many other activities both large and small in the works, all designed to show support for many of the organizations that help make our community a better place to live.”

The St. Luke Adult Day Health Care program has served registrants and families from all across Oswego County, including people with Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related illnesses, traumatic brain injuries, chronic illnesses and developmental disabilities.

When opened in 1993, the St. Luke Adult Day Health Care program was the first of its kind in Oswego County.

“Our medical model adult day care program is a daily health monitoring and activities program designed to promote independence and delay institutionalization of a disabled adult,” said Harrison. “We serve individuals age 18 years and older who require on-going rehabilitation and medical services in an atmosphere that is friendly and supportive.”

The St. Luke ADHC program staff includes registered and licensed nurses, a registered dietician, activities specialist, social worker, secretary and certified nursing assistants.

Program registrants can attend Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Registrants can attend up to five days a week and as few as one day a week. Transportation for county residents can be arranged.
