The Adult Care Center is a non-profit organization that first offered part-time (one afternoon per week) adult care services in August 1993 at First Christian Church in Winchester.


In February 1994, the Center moved to Braddock Street United Methodist Church in Winchester and began full-time operation.


In March 2012, the Center relocated to the Snapp Foundry Building in the Our Health Complex at 411 N. Cameron St. in Winchester.

To-date, the Center has served over four hundred participants ranging in age from 23 to 100 with diagnoses ranging from a fractured hip to Alzheimer's disease (our most prevalent diagnosis).


Throughout its years of service, the Adult Care Center has maintained a reputation of providing quality personalized care to its participants while offering energetic activity programs that are both recreational and therapeutic.
