Here at Whittier Adult Day Health Care Center we are dedicated to providing clients with a safe and nurturing environment that provides stimulating activities for participants Monday to Friday. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for participants and their caretakers.
Since 1998 Whittier Adult Day Health Care Center has been proudly serving frail and disabled adults (18 & Over) by providing services to help maintain independence and well-being. Our Goal is to restore and maintain each participant’s optimal capacity for self-care, independence and self-advocacy to prevent unnecessary hospitalization.
