Harold Sherman Adult Day Center
Philosophy and Purpose:
Granville Medical Center established The Harold Sherman Adult Day Care Center in response to the needs of disabled adults and their care givers. The program is designed to provide care to the elderly, and mentally or physically disabled adults enabling them to remain in their homes as long as possible, while providing their caregivers with a much needed and deserved break from providing care. We are dedicated to facilitating optimum independence, while valuing human dignity and seeking to enhance the quality of life for all involved.
The Harold Sherman Adult Day Center's goal is to create a flexible and stimulating program which will meet the diverse and changing needs and interests of the participants.
