Margaret M. Shea RN Adult Day Health Program


The Margaret M. Shea RN Adult Day Health Program (formerly Mattapan Adult Day Health Program) offers families peace of mind and a support system to help them with decisions involving the care of their loved ones.

Our program has provided daycare services to Boston area adults and seniors for over 28 years.

  • For many frail elderly, adult day care allows them to live alone, or with family, postponing and often preventing nursing home placement.

  • Our adult day program also serves adults (age 18 and over) who may have disabilities that prevent them from being completely independent.

  • This environment offers structure to the isolated, confused, or depressed in a home-like setting.

  • The program provides respite to the primary caregiver to be employed outside the home while their family member attends the day program.

The Margaret M. Shea RN Adult Day Health Program is a program of services provided in an ambulatory, home-like setting for adults who do not require 24-hour institutional care, but because of physical and/or mental impairment, are not completely able to live independently.

  • Nursing
  • Social Services
  • Activities, Arts & Crafts, Games
  • Breakfast / Lunch / Snack
  • Transportation

Payment methods for Adult Day Health include Medicaid, private pay and other senior health care sources.
