Sirrine Adult Day Health Services provides professional, compassionate lifeline for caregivers as well as for individuals with disabilities
Caring for a loved one who’s suffering from dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s or another disability can be exhausting and expensive. Lifting those burdens and providing sufferers with an enriching environment is what Sirrine Adult Day Health Services is all about.
Sirrine is in its 36th year of providing a wide range of programs ranging from educational and therapeutic to recreational and social. Last year more than 250 people were served by the agency.
Its two locations, in downtown Mesa and the Red Mountain Center in east Mesa, are staffed by professionals as well as volunteers, said Executive Director Sherri Friend (left). Regular activities include a variety of games, entertainment, arts and crafts, exercise and outings. Nutritious meals are provided and transportation is available.
The board of directors and staff recently launched a “new beginnings process” that will involve revamping programs and facilities to ensure clients get the very best care available in state-of-the-art facilities. Friend said music and art therapy programs are being added, and the exercise program upgraded. The facilities also will be repainted, artwork added to the walls and new furniture brought in.
Sirrine Adult Day Services is a partner agency of Mesa United Way and also receives funding from Valley of the Sun United Way, the Area Agency on Aging, the State of Arizona, City of Mesa, the Boeing Employees Fund, The Arizona Republic/12 News Season for Sharing, the Sirrine Ladies Auxiliary as well as private fees and donations.
