At The MENTOR Network, we know that as people age, their needs change. We operate unique Adult Day Health (ADH) centers providing nursing care, nutritious meals and opportunities for the people we serve to make friends and participate in activities they enjoy. Our caring staff work with each elder and their circle of support, including physicians, to create an individualized Plan of Care that fits their needs and interests and helps them be as active as they would like to be.
We believe that personalized services and meaningful relationships can have a life-changing impact, and we see that in action each day. Our ADH services deliver meaningful outcomes that positively impact lives. The Network offers decades of experience, strength and stability that allow us to deliver individualized services to the elders we serve.
A National Organization with a Local Touch
The MENTOR Network is a premier health and human services provider offering an array of high-quality services in programs across the country. With community-based programs in more than 35 states, we are able to support our local programs like our ADH centers with the resources, expertise, technology and systems of a national organization. We have a proven track record of successfully welcoming ADH providers to our organization and are committed to delivering a positive experience—for you, your employees and the individuals you serve.
We currently provide Adult Day Health services in the states of Massachusetts, Maryland, Kentucky, New Hampshire and New Jersey. We have welcomed many of our ADH programs into The Network through acquisition and have seen the difference that a shared mission to improve quality of life for elders has made in the lives of those we serve.
Responding Quickly to COVID-19
When the COVID-19 pandemic began, we worked quickly to protect the safety of the elders we serve, as well as our employees, and minimize disruption to services so that individuals could continue receiving services throughout quarantine. We implemented protocols consistent with current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local health departments and our internal COVID-19 Task Force. We provide PPE including surgical and N95 masks as appropriate to help protect the health of those we serve and our employees.
The MENTOR Network has shipped 1.3 million masks per month across more than 3,000 locations nationwide. We also delivered more than 180,000 meals to our ADH program participants’ homes.
We leveraged our national resources including technology and our experienced staff to adapt our ADH services to the changing needs of those we serve. As program participants isolated at home, staff provided telewellness and meal delivery services to support them. This enabled us to ensure that they continued to receive medical guidance and healthy meals, while maintaining much-needed social connections during a difficult time. When staff visited participants’ homes, they took precautions such as wearing masks and performing wellness screenings, including temperature checks, before entering the homes.
Now that in-person services have resumed in many of our centers, we continue to implement protocols consistent with current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local health departments and our own COVID-19 Task Force to prevent the spread of coronavirus, including:
- Daily Health Screenings – Staff perform daily screenings including temperature checks as well as monitoring and reporting symptoms.
- Masks – Staff wear surgical masks at all times and also provide masks to participants.
- Handwashing – Staff wash hands frequently and encourage and support participants to do so.
- Cleaning – The centers are regularly cleaned with disinfectant, including high-touch areas like door handles and tables.
- Social Distancing – Our centers allow enough room for social distancing, with signs posted to encourage safe traffic flow and help everyone stay at least six feet apart.

Delia likes to be active. But like many adults, as she got older she developed a number of health problems. Suddenly she was not able to participate in the activities she loves, such as painting, working with plants, and socializing with her neighbors.
Managing her health all on her own was difficult, and she worried about being hospitalized. But when she came to Oasis Center, this all began to change. Meet Delia
