Kay Coppage/Plymouth Harbor Adult Day Program
Plymouth Harbor Adult Day Program provides care and companionship for older adults who could benefit from socialization and supervision and offers respite for caregivers. The program seeks to further the goal of allowing older adults to remain in the home. Started in 1991, Plymouth Harbor is a ministry of Central Congregational United Church of Christ, staffed by dedicated social workers and a team of caring volunteers.
Plymouth Harbor offers a warm, loving and welcoming environment in which participants can form peer friendships while engaging in meaningful activities, enjoying entertainment by local musicians, and sharing a nutritious meal. Plymouth Harbor participants also benefit from occasional visits from the children at Turning Sun School and friendly pets. Plymouth Harbor is open to older adults who can benefit from a nurturing and safe environment outside the home, including those who may not wish or be able to stay alone for extended periods and who can benefit from social interaction and a structured environment. The program fee is $42.00 per day.
