The Network Welcomes Mass Adult Day Health Alliance

MASS_ADH_outlineThe MENTOR Network is pleased to announce that it has expanded its growing array of services, welcoming Mass Adult Day Health Alliance, a provider of adult day health programs for elders and other individuals with complex medical and rehabilitative needs. With this addition, The MENTOR Network expands its continuum of home- and community-based services to include supports for elders whose medical needs require nursing supervision or rehabilitative care.

With eight locations across Massachusetts, Mass Adult Day Health Alliance provides participants with structured day services, offering opportunities for socialization, independent living skill-building and personal enrichment activities including art and music. Staff provide a mix of personalized supports tailored to each participant’s unique needs, including rehabilitation, transportation, dietary assistance and case management. Mass Adult Day Health Alliance’s locations operate as community-based cultural centers, staffed by multilingual employees in specialized programs designed around the needs of elders from many cultures, including those of Cape Verdean, Haitian, Russian, Puerto Rican, Dominican Republican, Chinese, and Cambodian descent.

“We are excited that Mass Adult Day Health Alliance has become a part of The Network family,” says Bill Duffy, Chief Operating Officer, Mass Adult Day Health Alliance. “We look forward to carrying out our shared mission of providing supports that truly make a difference for the people we serve, while strengthening the communities they call home.”

“For the past decade, Mass Adult Day Health Alliance has been a trusted provider of day health services for elders and other individuals with complex challenges, making them an ideal addition to The MENTOR Network,” says Bruce Nardella, President and Chief Executive Officer of The MENTOR Network. “With our own successful track record of providing high-quality Day Programs for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, we are proud to provide these quality-of-life-enhancing services to a new population of individuals to help them live more fully and independently in their communities and avoid less desirable and more expensive institutional care.”
