"Where you'll feel at home away from home"

Since 1985 Adult Day Health Care of Mad River has been providing a warm, welcoming, community based program. Our mission is to provide services for medically at risk adults over 18 years of age with medical needs including developmental delays, mental health diagnoses, dementia / Alzheimer's, traumatic brain injuries and serious chronic medical issues, while improving health and quality of life, allowing respite and peace of mind for caregivers.

Adult Day Health Care of Mad River is licensed by the State Department of Health and Human services and is certified as a Medi-Cal provider with the California Department of Aging. Our staff is here to help promote and maintain each participant's highest level of health and independence while providing care givers an opportunity to seek work or pursue an active life-style outside their home. Participants are at the program site from 2 to 5 days per week, Monday through Friday for a minimum of four hours per day. 

It is our goal to provide a safe, stimulating environment with comprehensive services available under one roof. An overview of our services include: nursing and personal care, social services, dietary services including a snack and lunch during program, physical, occupational and speech therapy, social and recreational activities as well as transportation to and from our center.

We are located atFront entrance of ADHC 3800 Janes Road in Arcata, directly behind Mad River Community Hospital. We serve the Arcata/Eureka area, including Fieldbrook, McKinleyville, and Blue Lake.           

Because of our proximity to the hospital, Adult Day Health Care has convenient access to a variety of support services, such as the emergency room, physician offices, laboratory and x-ray services.
