About Us

House of Welcome Adult Day Services was established in 1983 as the first specialized dementia adult day program in the Chicago area. We offer a unique day program of structured, therapeutic, small-group activities in a comfortable, homelike setting. These vital programs provide mental and physical stimulation through art, music and dance therapy, and other dementia-focused activities like word games and discussion groups.

Our Philosophy 

In accordance with the mission of North Shore Senior Center to foster the independence and well-being of older adults, enhance their dignity and self respect, and promote their participation in and contribution toward all aspects of community life, House of Welcome Adult Day Services has laid out a road map to support the quality of life of people with memory loss and their families with the following goals:

  • To provide socialization, stimulation and therapeutic activities for participants to support optimal functioning and quality of life.
  • To provide support and respite for family caregivers.
  • To support people with memory loss in living in the community for as long as appropriate.
