Agrace opens adult day center

Editor’s note: This article has been updated from its original version.

Agrace Adult Day Center has opened at 1702 W. Beltline Highway in Madison. The freestanding center is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It is designed to feel familiar and friendly to older adults, with accessible spaces for activities, quiet rest, meals, and more. Eventually, the facility will serve up to 64 adults a day with staff including a registered nurse manager, caregivers, a CNA dementia specialist, a chef, and volunteers.

A public open house and reception was originally scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 26, from 4–6 p.m., but that event has now been postponed by Agrace out of an abundance of caution in the face of increased COVID cases in Dane County. A new date has yet to be set.

Agrace is a nonprofit health care organization that also provides personal care, supportive care, hospice care, and grief support to people who are aging, ill, or dying in southern Wisconsin.
