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 over 35 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 loved one. 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.  Our team strives 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.

MountainCare is proud to be affiliated with Age-Friendly Buncombe County. To learn more, click here.

Adult Day Centers

Our Adult Day Centers provide a safe and enjoyable place for aging adults to stay engaged during the day, while receiving expert care in one of our beautiful, award-winning facilities, located in Buncombe and Henderson 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.
