All About the Adult Day Center at Williamsburg Landing

The Williamsburg Landing Adult Day Center was built within Williamsburg Landing to provide a warm, welcoming place for participants to visit and enjoy the company of friends, the stimulation of activities and the affirmation of living a life with a purpose.

After three years of planning and building, the center opened on April 2, 2018 with just two participants and has grown to having served 72 in just two years.

Designed for those 50 and over and open to the local community, the Adult Day program is the first full-time licensed service of its kind in the area and offers an uplifting option for family caregivers and their loved ones. It provides:

  • A professional and caring staff
  • Individualized care plans based on medical, health & social needs
  • Health monitoring and medication management, if needed
  • Assistance with hygiene and personal care
  • Nutritious meals and snacks prepared daily
  • Caregiver support and education
  • A variety of activities that support social, emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual needs

The Center offers a pre-scheduled full day option at an affordable price of $95 (two-day minimum required), and they accept veteran’s benefits along with some other insurances. The goal of the program is to provide participants with meaningful connection and a sense of belonging and “fun” while giving families a much needed break.

The Center offers spaces such as a large gathering room, an art studio, music and activity rooms, a quiet room, living room and an enclosed outdoor garden that is loved by many participants. Some of the fulfilling activities that are offered include:

  • Fitness fun
  • Music programs
  • Expressive art
  • Cooking classes and demos
  • Reminiscing, trivia and games
  • Fun socials with new friends
  • “It’s Never 2 Late” Technology
  • Guest speakers

This comprehensive program gives caregivers a period of respite to take care of their own personal needs while preserving financial resources. It offers peace of mind to families with the promise of a vibrant, engaging atmosphere at a fraction of what it would cost for the same care at an institutional facility.

The Adult Day Center is evaluated by participants and caregivers via satisfaction surveys and by the Virginia Department of Social Services. In the last year the center as had three surveys, all of which have been deficiency free. In 2019 the center won the “Center of Distinction Award” from the National Adult Day Services Association which recognizes outstanding and innovative adult day centers that serve as a model on which others can learn from as “best practice.”
