Our Adult Day Services Program is tailored to meet each participant’s individual and personal needs. We offer a safe, comfortable place to enjoy social and recreational activities with peers, and provide any and all assistance needed throughout the day. We have a wide variety of services available to our Adult Day participants. More information on these services can be found on this page and by contacting our center.

All of our services are available to our participants throughout the day. Upon intake, an individual care plan is designed with each participant and together we determine which services will best suit their needs. If at any time needs change, the care plan will change accordingly.

(Note: Some services do have additional costs.  These include a hot lunch, transportation, and outings that require transportation or expenses.)

Every day at Common Sense Services provides compassionate care in a safe and enjoyable environment. We start the day with a social hour so we can catch up with friends and keep up on current events. We follow that with a variety of activities throughout the day, a hot lunch at noon and a snack at 2:30 pm. Every day is different and exciting but planned around a basic structure to help build a familiar routine.

Socialization_131522Throughout the year we plan outings to interesting places. In the past, we have enjoyed a picnic at Lake Phalen Park, visited the travelling Vietnam Memorial Wall exhibit when it was at South Saint Paul High School, enjoyed a fishing trip along the river bank, and traveled to see the Winter Carnival Ice Palace in Saint Paul.

We love to have fun at Common Sense Services so we are always working on the next holiday party or special day to celebrate. Plans for each month can be viewed on our Calendar.
