Purpose

 

Walker Adult Day Health promotes healthy aging with the focus to improve and enhance overall wellness.

Through a System of supportive services in one location the program conveniently assists people experiencing isolation due to physical and psychosocial demands. Attendance maintains and/or increases independence for older adults. Participants can continue to live at home and remain an active part of family and community.

“Minnesota is a place where all individuals live well, age well

and help others in their communities

to do the same.”

The Minnesota Department of Human Services

vision for the age wave.

About Us

 

The program is in its ninth year of business in Walker, MN. Adult Day programs have evolved from a 4 hour day, up to a 12 hour day with numerous activities to maintain a healthy and rewarding lifestyle. Participants choose the days and length of attendance that best support their individual goals.

A new 3,200 square foot facility was built in 2016.

We can serve 30 participants per day and have one bus, one van, one car  and contracted drivers to transport to and from surrounding rural areas around Walker.

Walker Adult Day Health will continually evolve to meet the on-going needs of our participants. Patios, raised gardens, rock features and paved walking trails are a glimpse of what has been implemented to compliment an atmosphere of enjoyable activities.

Who can Benefit

 

Everyone! Current participants contribute incredible life stories. They are individuals who have paved the way towards today’s life quality. Many choose to utilize Walker Adult Day Health because they are less active due to changes in health, which influences their ability to manage activities of daily living and quality driving techniques. Stroke, diabetes, heart disease, dementia, chronic pain, osteoporosis, arthritis, sight and hearing challenges, loneliness, are some of the health histories addressed in care. The program regularly connects participants with friends and community. Relationships cultivated continue to transform the lives of both staff and participants.
