Adult Day Services

Luther Manor offers Adult Day Programs in two locations – Wauwatosa and Grafton – which provide services that promote health, social confidence, independent living and personal growth in older adults. We recognize and honor each participant as a unique individual and build relationships by making time to get to know everyone personally.

The Academy @ Luther Manor: An Adult Day Program

Luther Manor's Wauwatosa campus has befun offering a new format to its adult day services. The Academy @ Luther Manor: An Adult Day Program is designed to incorporate a well-rounded set of memory wellness exercises and activities developed by nationally recognized leaders in the field of aging. Art, music, exercise, brain games and creative social interactions are woven together in a daily schedule that helps seniors live an abundant life. Participants are welcome to try out the program before signing up.

  • The core program runs from 10 am to 3 pm weekdays.
  • Optional activities are available as early as 7:30 am and as late as 5 pm.
  • Monthly field trips and a daily hot lunch are provided.
  • A maximum of 24 participants is allowed each day for small group activities.

What to expect

Both of our Adult Day Programs support independence and offer opportunities to interact with others in meaningful ways. Specifically, we help participants:

  • Build on the unique qualities of every person as the starting point for relationships.
  • Promote social confidence so that each person can expect to interact positively with others.
  • Recognize self-worth by offering roles and activities that complement participants’ strengths.
  • Inspire hope that every day will bring something more to look forward to.
  • Treat every person with respect. 

Are finances a concern?

There are a variety of options available to help fund the cost of Adult Day Services, including Family Care and Long-Term Care Insurance. If your loved one is receiving primary care services through the Veterans Administration, the VA can provide coverage towards day services at Luther Manor Adult Day Centers.
