ELKHART — Riverview Adult Day Health Center will celebrate National Adult Day Center Week Sept. 15-21, turning a spotlight on caregiving and celebrating caregivers.

This week has been celebrated annually since it was proclaimed on Sept. 27, 1983, by President Ronald Reagan.

Executive director Nicole Hardy-Pagels said the public is particularly welcome to visit the center during this week, which will have special activities to let clients honor caregivers.

Tuesday features Riverview ADHC’s monthly Caregivers Support Group, which starts at 10 a.m. and is open to everyone.

Riverview Adult Day Health Center serves seniors and special needs adults in the area who cannot be safely left alone, who demonstrate a decline in cognitive functioning or who need socialization and to connect more with others. They offer respite for caregivers and help individuals to continue to live at home. A certified program director plans out the center’s daily activities and events that include Wii bowling, brain games, visits from the Potawatomi Zoo, the Elkhart Public Library and more.
