What makes our Adult Day Services program so special?

Our goal is for all we serve to feel honored, celebrated, and valued. Our caring and professional staff quickly become a trusted part of your family cargiving team.

Flexible Participation

Several payment options are available including private pay, Medicaid, local grants, and long-term insurance coverage.

Join us once a week, twice a week or for all five days on our campus in southwest Portland, Oregon. We are happy to have you participate in a way that works best for you. Adult Day Services hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

In addition, Cedar Sinai Park offers excellent care coordination services. Our Adult Day Services program can easily be combined with our assisted living services at Rose Schnitzer Manor, or our skilled nursing at Robison Jewish Health Center/Harold Schnitzer Center for Living.

We provide interesting and enjoyable planned group activities adjusted to the needs, abilities, and interests of participants to encourage self-esteem and feelings of success.
