St. Ann’s Adult Day Program in Webster Announces Extended Hours


Evening, weekend hours offer added convenience for family caregivers  

 

Family members looking for a safe, caring environment for their older loved ones during the day or evening will have additional options through a program offered by St. Ann’s Community.

The Home & Heart Adult Day Program at 696 Ridge Road, Webster, now offers evening and weekend hours and is open as follows:

 

  • Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

Previously, the program was open Monday through Friday from 7:30-5:00.

“We know that the need for a safe place for older adults to socialize doesn’t end at 5 p.m. or on Fridays,” says Rola O’Meally, MS, RN, Director of Adult Day and Dementia Services at St. Ann’s Community. “Family caregivers who need time for themselves, whether for work or personal reasons, have relied on our Adult Day Programs for years. We’re pleased to now extend that reliability to evenings and weekends for their added convenience. They can rest assured their loved one is in good hands.”

To register for evening or weekend hours at Home & Heart in Webster, call (585) 697-6087. Spaces are limited and will be filled on a pre-registration basis.
