FiftyForward Friends Adult Day Services is OPEN and we are now enrolling new participants! For information about the Adult Day Services program, please call 615-742-4693. The health/wellbeing of our program participants is paramount in everything we do at FiftyForward.

We all want a place where we can truly be known and appreciated as the special individuals we are — where we can connect with others while enjoying a day full of fun and enriching activities.

FiftyForward Friends Adult Day Services is that kind of place, a licensed program where adults 50 and older—who may have cognitive, memory, health or physical needs—can continue to thrive and enjoy an active life.

FiftyForward Friends Adult Day Services was the first program of its kind in Middle Tennessee. Our nurturing and supportive day program features a variety of engaging, fun activities that encourage daily learning, social interaction and connection, and an enhanced quality of life for adults 50 and older who may have cognitive or physical needs which prevent them from staying home alone safely.

Additionally, caregivers benefit from services that support their caregiving role and minimize the time spent away from work and other family obligations. Caregivers have confidence in knowing their loved ones are well-cared for and engaged in meaningful activities.

We know that cognitive, memory or physical challenges can be part of life’s journey. Your loved one will receive safe, high-quality care in our bright, nurturing setting. You will find peace of mind knowing that caring, professionally-trained staff create an environment that is engaging, accepting, and geared to individual needs and preferences.

FiftyForward Friends Adult Day Services participants benefit from:

  • A welcome from friendly staff followed by a nutritious and delicious breakfast, lunch, and snack;
  • Lively conversation with laughter and sharing;
  • Top-notch programming throughout the day;
  • Exercise for the body (stretching, seated dance, games);
  • Enrichment for the soul (music, arts & crafts, armchair travel);

All activities are conducted with safety first and in accordance with CDC guidelines.
