Adult Day Respite Program

The Chosen Valley Adult Day Respite program provides supervised activities as well as nursing and medical care in order to offer older adults and handicapped people support services to make it possible for them to remain living independently in the community. These services are offered to those 18 years of age or older, for less than 24 hours a day, who are functionally impaired, according to the MN DHS Rules for Adult Day Care Centers.

The Adult Day Respite program is designed to support independent living for people not requiring 24-hour care. Our program is intended to help members maintain the highest possible level of functioning physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually while giving the care giver respite from care giving duties.


Goals for this program:

  • Maintain and/or regain the best possible level of functioning, while helping to overcome the social isolation that is often a part of aging or living with a handicap.
  • Provides caretakers needed time to carry on functions difficult to do while performing daily care giving duties.
  • Serves as an alternative to nursing home placement, and to help ease the transition from hospitalization and acute illness to living at home.
  • Serves as a transition between acute care, independent living, and nursing home care.
  • Provides supervised activities for older adults living in the community.
