Adult Day Services
Located at the OSF Saint Clare's Hospital campus in Alton, we provide a secure, caring, family-like environment for your loved one suffering from the effects of strokes, head injuries, social isolation and Alzheimer’s Disease.
The program is offered Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with transportation available to those in Madison County.
A physician's referral is not necessary for admission in to Adult Day Services, but the participant's physician is contacted to obtain a copy of the participant's history for use the staff members.
As the area’s only hospital-based, medically-supervised facility of its kind, participants are able to receive therapy by physician order, including speech, occupational and physical therapy and are under medical supervision at all times.
Financial Assistance is available through the Illinois Department on Aging and Department of Rehabilitation for those under 60 years old. We will assist you with the process. To learn more, contact Melissa at (618) 463-5333.

Adult Day Services offers not only respite for caregivers, but also a special social support system. Every month, staff members hold a Family Support Group meeting where the staff and family can get together and talk about ways to better care for their loved ones.
The Family Support Group meets the last Thursday of each month (except November and December) from 1 to 3 p.m., in the Adult Day Services at OSF Saint Clare's Hospital. Alzheimer's disease or other health-related problems can be very challenging. The support group members are able to address concerns and needs, and offer support and compassion to each other.
