House of Welcome (HOW) Adult Day Services provides specialized programs for people living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Services include a Day Program, an early memory loss program, family support and education. We are also approved by the VA as a provider of adult day care for veterans who have dementia. All HOW staff are trained in person-centered dementia care and professional specialties include nursing, creative arts therapies, recreation therapy, counseling and social work.

While our doors are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize the importance of coming together and staying connected. We are thrilled to offer our programs virtually and free of charge. To learn more, call 847.242.6250 or email how@nssc.org
