Adult Day Services celebrates one year on new campus

My, oh, my! How time flies when everyone is having fun!

It would seem that in the time it takes for big smiles to appear at a Friday afternoon dance party or uncontrollable laughter to break out during a water splash day, Adult Day Services at Catholic Charities has reached the one-year anniversary of moving into its new home in northwest Wichita.

The fun and celebration is expected to continue this spring with the completion of the new accessible outdoor recreation area on the 5.5 acre campus located at 2235 W. 37th St. N.

Providing quality day programs

“From the beginning of the Blessing Families, Enriching Lives capital campaign three years ago to today’s work on the recreation space, we have felt God’s abundant blessings on this project every step of the way,” says Wendy Gick, executive director. “Donors responded with great generosity, helping us create a wonderful atmosphere for those we serve.”

ADS provides quality day programs for both adults with intellectual and development disabilities, and seniors who are experiencing dementia, Alzheimer’s or loneliness. It offers a private pay option for those without Medicaid funding and an income-based sliding fee scale for qualified participants.

Capacity to grow

Last spring’s move into the completely remodeled former Michener Elementary School doubled the square footage available for activities and services, and added amenities like a sensory room, dedicated changing rooms, a roll-in shower and a total of 24 ADA accessible bathrooms.

The additional space means that ADS has the capacity to grow, potentially double, the number of people it can serve. Colene Marshall, who has deep connections in Wichita’s senior services sector, has joined Catholic Charities to help make that growth happen. Colene is available to give tours, visit one-on-one with case managers and families, and represent ADS at community events.
