Adult Day Services

Friendships, Community Exploration, Personal Health & Wellness

What can you do at The Arc Otsego's Adult Day Services? How about enjoy lasting friendships? Explore the community? Learn ways to be healthier? Have access to nursing, and occupational and speech therapy? You can do all of these things and more!

Our goal at Adult Day Services is to help each individual achieve his or her dreams, while promoting self esteem, self confidence and self worth within the community and in each person's life.  Our community-based day habilitation and day treatment sites, located throughout Otsego County, offer many opportunities for exploration and involvement in a variety of activities.  From the arts to gardening, to cooking to exercising, to volunteering in the community to visiting malls, restaurants, movies and other attractions, our person-centered approach lets each individual create a program tailored to his or needs and desires.

 In addition to Day Habilitation and Day Treatment options, we offer additional opportunities to explore and grow through our Milford Men's Club and Day Hab without Walls program. We also offer a program tailored specifically to the needs and interests of retirees.

Exploring the Community

We are always looking for ways to be involved in the surrounding community. Individuals volunteer in a number of different ways including: delivering senior meals, collating paperwork for different business, making cookies for events, particularly The Arc Otsego dances, and doing yard work.

With the help of a Mary Frawley Grant, Adult Day Services planted and raised a flower garden and then created arrangements of the harvested flowers to give to deserving individuals throughout the area.  Each spring, we look forward to adding to the garden.

We also enjoy trips to local attractions, restaurants and shopping.

We Enjoy a Good Celebration!

Each year Day Services holds a number of intra-agency events including the Fall Freedom Games, The Spring Talent Show, The Summer Picnic and theme Fridays.


Milford Men's Club

Each individual in the Milford Men's Club has the opportunity to plan his own schedule and explore his interests in the surrounding communities.  This group is constantly on the move-always looking for new and exciting things to do and experience.  Activities have included volunteering at several places including senior meals delivery, Fox Hospital Nursing Home and Gilbert Lake to clean the trails; bowling, horseback riding, hiking, fishing sports and sight seeing and a weekly healthy cooking day.  If the weather is favorable, we are on the go!
