About adult day care services…

UPDATE as of May 5, 2020: In compliance with state directives and our own steps in light of the COVID-19 public health crisis, Diakon Adult Day Services at Manatawny remains closed until further notice. Please also see Diakon’s general statement on its preparation for and response to the virus on the main Diakon website. We apologize for any inconvenience but the health and safety of our clients and staff members must come first.

There is no place like home–that's why Manatawny Manor—located in Pottstown, Pennsylvania—offers adult day services. In many situations, the adult day care program allows older persons or those with disabilities to live at home or with family members during the evenings and weekends.

Providing caregivers in Chester County, Montgomery County, Berks County, and surrouding regions with a respite during the weekdays, Diakon Adult Day Services at Manatawny offers a comfortable and stimulating setting in which participants enjoy a myriad of services and amenities.

Participants are supervised in a secure setting by a registered nurse/program director and program assistants. Together, they encourage participants’ maximum level of participation, potentially preventing social isolation or premature placement in a care center. In addition, Diakon Adult Day Services at Manatawny works closely with a variety of home health care agencies to coordinate care.
