A social day program for seniors

Due to COVID-19 the Adult Day Program at Longview has been temporarily suspended to ensure the health and safety of its participants, Longview residents, tenants and staff. A contact list is being maintained for anyone interested in information on enrolling when the program reopens. Please feel to add your name to the list if you would like to be contacted. You may email Pamela Nardi at pnardi@longviewithaca.org or Bethany Calkins at bcalkins@longviewithaca.org.

Longview’s Adult Day Program involves its participants in many of the activities our resident seniors do each day. Even more important, the program offers the opportunity to socialize with peers who share interests and experiences. In a safe and secure atmosphere, seniors will find a stimulating social and recreational environment outside of the home.

A typical day at The Adult Day Program begins with everyone gathered around the table enjoying coffee and light conversation. Topics range from fitness to food, hobbies to holidays, drawing on lifelong favorite memories shared and enjoyed by all.

The only social adult day program in Tompkins County, it offers socialization, physical and cognitive stimulation activities that add a new dimension to you or your loved ones life!

Enrollment forms

After coffee, everyone limbers up with a half hour or exercise in the auditorium. From then on each day offers varied activities, outlined in the weekly recreation calendar. There are word games, cards, Tai Chi, indoor bowling and horseshoes, baking, crafts, and countless other programs, all designed for the senior population. Everyone has a favorite activity, but one common thread runs through it all: smiles and fun!

The program runs 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Participants are free to choose a schedule that fits their individual needs. Some participants come all five days, others one or two. The enrollment fee is $60 a day. Enrollment includes lunch with the Adult Day staff in the Longview dining room.
