Adult Day Health Centers

Caregiving can be demanding. To help caregivers take a break, the Arizona Caregiver Coalition offers caregiver respite at no cost.  We work with Adult Day Health Centers throughout Arizona to provide this respite. You (the caregiver) can get a break and your loved one can engage in activities.

Adult Day Health Centers (ADHC) offer care and supervised activities during the day for seniors and adults with disabilities. Centers also have classes, music and meals. The Arizona Department of Health licenses all Centers. Trained caregivers and registered nurses are available all day at the Centers. Care is available during the day, Monday through Friday. Some Centers can provide transportation.

The Arizona Caregiver Coalition see Adult Day Health Centers as a wonderful option for caregivers and their loved ones. Information about the Centers we work with is below. To learn more about our program, call us at 888-737-7484 or visit our Respite page. Other programs offer Respite, including AHCCCS-ALTCS. If you are not eligible for these programs, you can also contact any Center directly and ask about programs and rates.

SunTree Adult Day Center & School for Seniors®

4120 N 20th St.
Phoenix, Arizona

The ‘School For Seniors’ was founded in 2015. The word School was inspired by the program’s participants.

SFS was designed to be innovative, fun, and lively. The goal is to help the members of the SunTree family, some of whom have dementia, bask in a sense of belonging. Kindness and respect are key elements of the program.

The curriculum touches on topics that are quirky and in the here-and-now. The school likes to shake it up by offering group electives such as boxing, music, and art. Humor runs wild!

School for Seniors® is based on the philosophy that staff, caregivers, and students work with seniors in order to find (and recover) purpose, identity, and self-worth while helping them establish a social routine.
