Serving Western North Carolina For 36 Years
MountainCare first opened its doors in 1986 as “Mountain Geri-Care.” Over the years, our name, location, and capacity have changed, but our goal has always remained the same: to provide high-quality, community-based care for older adults and their caregivers. For many years, Adult Day Services belonged to CarePartners in Asheville. In 2019, when HCA purchased CarePartners, our services formed an independent, stand alone organization: MountainCare. Becoming “MountainCare” has allowed us to remain non-profit, so that we can continue providing services for anyone who needs them, regardless of circumstances.
MountainCare provides supportive and enriching Adult Day Services enabling older adults to age in place. We aspire to be an unwavering partner for adults and those who care for them. Together, we encourage independence, provide meaningful connections, and build community.
We bring the power of optimism.
We strive for excellence in our actions.
We stand witness in compassion.
We develop and share our expertise.
We cherish our community and the relationships it provides.
We show respect to all and the world we live in.
Our award-winning Adult Day Centers in Buncombe and Henderson counties provide a safe and enjoyable place for aging adults where they can stay active and involved while receiving expert, compassionate care.
MountainCare also offers the Mountain Explorers program for adults with mild impairment who are interested in a program of social opportunities, mental stimulation, exercise and enrichment.
MountainCare also provides operational support to the Seating & Wheeled Mobility Clinic – a critical service which has existed within our community for decades. The goal of the clinic is to maximize your independence, freedom, and comfort, while also preventing life-threatening pressure sores and other serious medical complications. An expert physical therapist provides custom fitting, seating, and cushioning to children and adults with CP, SCI, MS, ALS, and other conditions which require them to spend their day in a wheelchair.
