As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we are working hard to navigate the best ways to contain the spread of COVID-19 and ensure employee and client safety.
The following programs remain closed:
- Adult Day Program
- Rose Centers for Aging Well senior centers, including congregate meals
- Senior Companion Program
All individuals who received congregate meals at the Adult Day Program continue to have the choice to have meals delivered to their home. These arrangements must be made directly with the Adult Day Program.
In his August 20 press conference, Governor Mike DeWine announced that adult day care centers may begin re-opening September 21, if they meet certain safety standards outlined by the state.
We are doing all we can to make sure that when the Adult Day Program reopens, appropriate safety protocols are in place, all staff are properly trained on those protocols, and participants and families are provided with the information needed to make informed decisions about attending. We will share details with clients and families when they are available.
If you have questions or concerns during the closure, please call 216.373.1995 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging Adult Day Program provides participants living with cognitive impairment and developmental disabilities with a safe and supportive space to participate in social and therapeutic programs and enjoy nutritious meals. Our staff has expertise in social work, nursing and caring for individuals with cognitive and functional impairments, allowing us to respond to the unique needs of each participant. Participants’ families can also feel at ease knowing their loved one’s health is being monitored while they enjoy engaging and individualized programming.
The goals of our Adult Day Program include:
- Providing participants with a safe, comforting environment
- Improving and sustaining cognitive and physical health in a supportive and respectful space
- Improving and sustaining social skills through therapeutic, social and recreational activities
- Fostering a sense of accomplishment and self-worth
The Adult Day Program is designed for older adults aged 60 and over.
What we offer:
- Therapeutic activities for older adults with cognitive or memory-related impairments and developmental disabilities, such as:
- MUSIC & MEMORY®
- Physical and creative activities which stimulate the senses
- Health monitoring
- Social activities, including clubs, discussion groups, dances, reminiscence sessions, holiday celebrations and intergenerational projects
- Recreational activities, including arts and crafts, exercise, field trips, bingo and group lessons
- A hot lunch and two snacks a day
- Transportation to the program location for those within a six-mile radius of Margaret Wagner House
- Respite for caregivers
- Referrals to other Benjamin Rose home and community-based services
By participating in our Adult Day program, participants’ health will be monitored and assessed to assure that they are maintaining a healthy level of activity. National studies have shown that regular health assessments can help to reduce hospitalization and reduce the risk of falls. Studies have also shown that adult day programs can keep older adults engaged and stimulated, while keeping them in regular social contact with peers, preventing isolation. These benefits can often contribute to an overall happier and healthier lifestyle for participants.
Our trained intake specialist will discuss payment options with you, including approved insurance providers, such as Medicare and Medicaid plans. To receive more information, refer families of an older adult who you are working with to our Adult Day Program or schedule a tour call (216) 791-8000 or e-mail email@example.com.
