Day care for frail seniors at Salvation Army center in Honolulu

Submitted by on January 9, 2013 – No Comment

Staying active at The Salvation Army's Adult Day Health Services program in Honolulu


When my colleague John Docter goes on a business trip to take his software training brilliance on the road for The Salvation Army, he takes his Canon 5D along for the ride.

The result is that he takes gorgeous photos of one or two subjects or programs and creates a slideshow of images to share on our website.

Not long ago he went to Hawaii to do some training and came back with a camera full of images and some recorded sound from our Adult Day Health Services (ADHS) program in Honolulu.

ADHS is a daytime program that cares for frail or disabled older adults and provides health care and fellowship to foster healthy aging and help our sweet seniors maintain their quality of life.

The program also provides peace of mind for families and caretakers who work during the day, knowing their loved ones are in good care. It’s a wonderful way to avoid institutional placement for seniors who prefer to remain in their own home and community for as long as possible.
