Giles Health & Family Center is a private, non-profit center that offers Adult Day Care and Child Day Care. Adult Day Care is for adults who need supervision, care and support during the daytime while their caretakers rest or work. The goals of Adult Day Care are to prevent premature or unnecessary nursing home placement, to provide a break for caregivers, to promote independent living for adults with impairments, and to enhance the quality of life for disabled and older persons and their family caregivers.
Child Day Care is provided at the Kids & Co. Child Development Center for children ages 2 to 12 years. The facility is designed with large windows, a spacious outdoor play area and colorful equipment with materials that invite children to explore, learn, create, communicate and enjoy their day. The Center also offers after school care for children ages 6 months to 12 years and kindergarten preparation programs.
The Giles Health & Family Center focuses on the emotional, physical and intellectual well-being and development of children and older adults by offering award-winning intergenerational programs that allow for planned activities and unplanned encounters between the two age groups.
As the only Medicaid provider in the area, the Center provides transportation services to and from doctor's appointments. Rates are based on mileage and whether the rider requires a wheelchair accessible vehicle. The Center currently has one wheelchair accessible bus and three cars. As a G-NET member, the Center coordinates G-REACH transportation services.
