BOGADS

Be Our Guest Adult Day Service

 

Be Our Guest Adult Day, commonly referred to as BOGADS, is a valuable resource for individuals and families dealing with dementia and forms of dementia such as Alzheimer's as well as other chronic health concerns (Parkinson's, Lewy Body Disease, etc.).

Caregiver Testimonials:

  • "The staff at Be Our Guest made the transition to the facility very easy and comforting during a very emotional next step phase of care giving."
  • "The caregiver activities bring Mom a smile when we talk about her activities after she arrives home."
