Phone: (530) 666-8828

Dawn Myers Purkey, Program Manager

Funding supports transportation services for Davis and rural Yolo County residents to access and benefit from Yolo Adult Day Health Center.  Yolo Adult Day Health Center serves adults 18 and older with medical or cognitive challenges that interfere with independent living. Over 75% of program participants are low income.  All clients have chronic health care needs and are unable to perform at least two activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, walking, eating and dressing.  The program offers nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapies, social services, dietary services, activities, transportation and specialized support for family caregivers. This community-based multidisciplinary approach to care reduces ER visits, minimizes hospitalizations and prevents need for skilled nursing placement.
