Adult Day Services | San Mateo County

Since 1975, Catholic Charities Adult Day Services has offered a sensible and affordable option for care and companionship during the day to residents of San Mateo County. In addition to providing a broad range of recreational and social activities, our program offers non-medical personal care, supervision, and assistance with activities of daily living.

Our goal is to create an environment that respects the dignity and life experience of those who might otherwise become isolated and are in need of some social interaction and stimulating activities. We help their families keep them in their own homes and communities as long as it is safe for them to do so. We provide support to caregivers who may be facing one of their most challenging roles, often with little experience or training to do so.

Our program is situated in a bright, spacious room bordered by an enclosed courtyard shaded by a majestic oak tree. With no more than 35 participants per day, we offer a range of fun and stimulating activities, the opportunity to make new friends, and an environment of warmth and respect created by our experienced staff.

We are conveniently located on a residential street just one block from the shops and restaurants along San Carlos’ Laurel Street.
