PLEASE NOTE: ESI’s in-person programs, including our adult day center Project Independence, are on hold for now due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Founded in 1981, Elderly Services’ original purpose was to offer elders and their families an adult day care center to help delay or prevent nursing home placement. Decades later, our award-winning adult day center — Project Independence — continues as our flagship program.
