The Adult Day Center is one of the Aging Services programs through Catholic Charities Madison, and is certified by the Wisconsin Department of Health.


Our adult day center supports older adults and any adult with medical concerns, in maintaining independence for living in their own homes and communities. We are the largest adult day center in Dane County and the only center in the county that offers a custom program for people with dementia, Alzheimer's, and other memory loss conditions. We provide a more affordable alternative to nursing homes and most in-home health care services.


Participants attend 1-5 days per week and spend their day with us socializing and enjoying fun activities with peers and community volunteers; meanwhile, we provide a safe environment with professional staff to care for them and assist with medical needs.



Caregivers are able to tend to chores, remain employed, or have some rest and relaxation while their family member or friend is at our center.



We are proud to be accredited with the Council on Accreditation, a member of the Wisconsin Adult Day Services Association, and a certified MUSIC & MEMORYSM facility through Dan Cohen's Certification Program.
