We endeavor to be the most diligent, proficient and caring service program we can be. Our senior staff has over
85 years of combined experience in working in an adult day care program and we can truthfully say that we are still learning. Every day brings new challenges and events from which we learn.
Our philosophy is to address the concerns of the entire family, while catering to the immediate physical and social needs of the individual. Experience and dedication creates a program that consistently provides the socialization and stimulation that helps stabilize both the mental and physical health of many of our clients... our guests... our friends.
We see all of our participants as individuals, with individual wants and needs, and care for them accordingly. The emphasis is on compassionate care and serving everyone with respect, understanding and love. Our staff is dedicated to providing our friends with the same love and patience that they would extend to their own parents.
All staff members have ongoing training in over 20 disciplines; there is continuous training and education which includes sensitivity training, CPR and First Aid. Also, with a small staff-to-client ratio, our guests receive the close, personal attention they deserve.
Our spacious, uncrowded facilities offer everyone a safe, warm, nurturing environment in a non-clinical, homelike atmosphere.
From an exercise program designed by an experienced, professional physical education instructor to improve strength and flexibility to "Helping Hands" designed to increase independence and self-esteem, our whole program has been created to work well with
all of our participants and help them reach their full potential.
With over 100 different selections and several skill levels, our activities program has been developed to encourage client participation. With selections such as BINGO, cards, gardening club, Bible study, puzzles, trivia, ring toss, singing, etc., there’s always something available for our clients’ enjoyment!
Whether the need is rest and relaxation, an exciting, stimulating activity program,
reinforcing important daily living skills or just plain FUN, Among Friends has what your loved
Experienced, Dedicated Staff
The upper management of Among Friends has over 85 years of combined experience in adult day services. Most have been with us since we first opened our doors in Crestwood in 1997.
We take great pride in the dedication, professionalism and experience-level of our nursing staff. Client care and safety is first and foremost for our
2 on-site RNs, our 2 LPNs, and the rest of our program aides and drivers. In fact, although it's not a requirement, we strive for 100% of our staff to have current certifications in First Aid and CPR.
With the ongoing training of each and every staff member working in our facilities, we attempt to ensure that our mission --
To serve all those who need us with Respect,
Understanding and Love -- is consistently followed by all who are involved.
Transportation is an important aspect of our service. Since many of our clients wouldn’t be able to participate in our program without our transportation, we attempt to provide the best, reasonably priced service possible.
To that end, we make every effort to accommodate our client families’ schedules. In fact, each of our routes is newly created, on a daily basis, to ensure that our clients are picked up or dropped off in the most timely and efficient manner possible.
Between both sites, we have over 12 vehicles — all wheelchair accessible. Also, we have a rotation plan for our buses that insures that the older ones will be replaced, even though the mileage may be low.
