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 open to adults aged 60 and over Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. – 4 p.m. and is located in Cleveland Heights at Margaret Wagner House.
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

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.
