Where Your Loved One Is Cared For As Our Own
MountainCare ‘s Adult Day programs have been serving our neighbors in Western North Carolina for more than 30 years. We have been here to support thousands of families over the years as they have stepped into the challenge of caring for an aging or cognitively impaired adult. We are eager to share what we have learned with you to make your experience easier and offer a variety of services to help you care for your loved one. We strive to provide affordable services that impact the caregiver as much as the participant.
We are grateful for the financial support that we can offer families to access our services. This support comes from grants, scholarship and the generous donations that we receive from the community through the WNC Bridge Foundation. Our Henderson center receives support from Pardee UNC Health Care through the generous usage of their building.
Adult Day Centers
Our Adult Day Centers provide a safe and enjoyable place for aging and impaired adults to stay engaged during the day, while receiving expert care in one of our beautiful, award-winning facilities, located in Buncombe, Henderson and Transylvania counties. We give caregivers peace of mind so they can work or manage other responsibilities knowing that their loved ones are surrounded by friends and a team of qualified, professional staff members.
Our Adult Day experts will monitor your loved one’s condition, safely administer medication, provide nutritious meals and offer meaningful activities that stimulate mind, body and spirit. Enrollment at one of our Adult Day Centers is available without a physician referral for adults 18 years and older.

We also make frequent outings to local venues, like the Arboretum, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Thomas Wolfe House, Grove Park Inn and more. The program takes place at MountainCare Adult Day Services on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

We also offer Overnight Respite for participants in our Adult Day Care and Mountain Explorers programs to stay overnight for up to two weeks, when caregivers need to be out of town or cannot manage care overnight for other reasons. Participants will have the benefits of the day program, plus a comfortable home-like bedroom and medical staff to monitor your loved one and administer medication.
The number of rooms available is limited, and availability will vary based on need and the level of care our participants require. State regulations limit stays to two-week intervals. The overnight rate is $240. This rate does not include the price of daytime hours, but does cover additional meals.
To learn more about the availability of Overnight Respite, financial assistance and our rates, please give us a call at 828-277-3399.
