The Adult Day Program assists families who are caring for senior adults who cannot be left alone during the day, but who do not yet need 24-hour nursing home care. Often, adults who are living at home with younger relatives need care during the daytime hours when their caregivers are working. Those caregivers may just need a break, or respite, from constant supervision and caring for senior adults or adults with development difficulties.

Cardinal Ritter Senior Services recognizes the needs of those families with its Adult Day Program located in Shrewsbury, Missouri.

Additional Information





Determining the medical and social needs of your loved one can be a difficult and confusing process. The questions below can help guide your decision-making when determining if adult day services would best serve your loved one. If your response to one or several of these questions is YES, you may find that both you and the person you are caring for would benefit from an Adult Day Program.

The person you provide care for:

  • Does he/she sleep a lot throughout
    the day, perhaps in front of the TV?
  • Do you feel that he/she would
    benefit by more social activity during
    the day?
  • Would you feel better if you knew
    your loved one could have meals
    and snacks, get appropriate
    exercise, receive assistance and
    supervision, and enjoy social
    company during the day?

You, the caregiver;

  • Do you need more time for
    yourself , or to be with other family
    members and friends?
  • Are you also working part time, or
    full time?
  • Have you thought about a nursing
    home, but feel guilty when you
    have these thoughts?
