An Active Adult Care Center

Where can Seniors Socialize in Omaha?
The Franciscan Adult Day Center specializes in caring for older adults who benefit from cognitive engagement, structured activities, social opportunities, medication monitoring and nutritious meals in a secure environment and combines meaningful, stimulating activities with special focus on individuals with short-term memory loss.
The Franciscan Adult Day Center eases the burden of caring for your loved one alone. The support and services provided at the Center can give caregivers a much-deserved break from the daily commitment - so you can work, relax, or go to a doctor's appointment. The choice is yours. The Center provides new life, new meanings, and new hope to participants and their families.
Day Center Nutritious Meals and Snacks
We provide breakfast, lunch, and a snack to our day program participants each day. Meals are a great time to socialize and exchange stories with other day program participants and staff.
