Diakon Lutheran Senior Services: Adult Day Services

Adult Day Services at Ravenwood

About adult day services…

UPDATE as of March 16, 2020: In compliance with a statewide directive and our own steps in light of the COVID-19 virus, Diakon Adult Day Services at Ravenwood is closed, effective March 17. Please also see Diakon’s general statement on its preparation for and response to the virus on the main website. We apologize for any inconvenience but the health and safety of our clients and staff members must come first. We will update this notice when we learn when we can re-open. Thank you for your understanding.

There’s no place like home—which is why Diakon offers adult day services on the Ravenwood campus of Diakon Senior Living – Hagerstown. In many situations, attending our program allows older persons or people with disabilities to live at home or with family members during the evenings and weekends. Providing caregivers with a respite during the weekdays, we offer a comfortable and stimulating setting in which participants benefit from numerous enjoyable, engaging activities and amenities.

An affordable alternative to other forms of care, Diakon Adult Day Services offers a safe, secure environment with a staff that includes registered nurses as well as certified nursing assistants, who provide daily care. Together, we encourage clients’ maximum level of participation, preventing social isolation or premature placement in a care facility.

Services and amenities include ...

  • Companionship and activities
  • Medication assistance
  • Transportation to and from the center
  • Bathing and grooming
  • Range of daily activities
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapies
  • Hot, nutritious meal and snacks daily
  • Monitoring of medical concerns
  • Social service consulting

Dining and socialization

Diakon Adult Day Services at Ravenwood offers a nutritious noon meal to participants as well as snacks served throughout the day. Participants’ social appetite also is satisfied as they enjoy a host of recreational events such as crafts, games, trips, exercise programs, religious events, cooking projects, holiday parties, and intergenerational programs.
