Concord Adult Day Enrichment Services

Healthy Bodies, Healthy Brains

Currently, the CADES program at Concord United Methodist Church offers daytime care, companionship, assistance, and structured activities to older adults who are unable to stay at home alone because of physical and mental impairments. Research shows that physical exercise is an important intervention in dementia-related illness. Adaptive exercise equipment will be purchased to promote better health outcomes for these clients. Staff training about the exercise element of the program will also be initiated. Concord United Methodist Church will provide the space needed for the program. The benefit of increased physical strength will promote better mental acuity for their clients.
