An Adult Day Health Care Center (ADHC) is a long term care program that allows individuals the choice to remain at home and in the community and aid in the prevention of premature institutionalization.
Among Friends ADHC is a community-based program that offers health, therapeutic and social services for adults with physical or mental impairments.  We offer a secure, stimulating, structured, and social experience to our patients; and respite relief for the caregivers.

We are licensed by the California Department of Health Care Services and certified as a Medi-Cal provider by the California Department of Aging.

Our program is designed for the frail elderly and disabled adults 18 years of age and older, who live at home, at residential care facilities, or at intermediate care facilities.

The program highlights a four-hour schedule of purposeful, organized activities and provides an enjoyable way to maintain functional capacity.  It offers a safe, fun, therapeutic environment for frail elderly or adults who need supervision during the day due to cognitive and/or physical impairments.

In addition, our program is designed to provide respite, education, and support to family and caregivers.

We service participants representing a wide variety of ethnic and minority groups including Hispanic, Filipino, Asian, African-Americans and Caucasians.

Our program emphasizes a partnership between the patient, family, physician and community in working towards maintaining personal independence and an enjoyable way of life.
