CarePartners Adult Day Center, Inc. was established in 1993 to provide quality, person-centered adult day services in Franklin and northern Grand Isle Counties. Originally, our adult day program was open once a week but in response to the community’s needs we have through the years expanded our days and hours of operation.  In the past 25 years, our program has grown tremendously and continues to expand.  Even as we grow, we will strive to maintain a program that is of a size that assures a high quality of service and intimacy.

It is our belief that each participant is a unique individual with strengths and weaknesses.  We recognize and encourage the individual strengths of participants, while providing supports for their limitations.  In addition, we believe everyone has the potential for growth and development.
