Thank you! Your kindness will never be forgotten.

The care and the cooperation that you and the staff gave to my mother when we needed to inform her that her son had passed away was so kind, that it is important that you receive the recognition and gratitude you so greatly deserve. You're appreciated so much for the excellent medical care and attention you provided her. It's comforting to know that your hearts are in it. Mostly, just knowing you were all so thoughtful is a true gift.

Nurse Manager Lynn Derme never stopped caring and always will listen to make a difference in a mom's life. Your kindness and hard work will always be remembered and appreciated.

– Family of the late S.C., Jr.

Medical Adult Day Care

Medical adult day care provides a place where someone requiring supervision can spend the day and have the opportunity to socialize and receive medical care.

The St. Catherine Adult Day Care Program allows individuals to live at home and enjoy a social network that can eliminate feelings of isolation. It can also reduce the stress that family, friends and caregivers may experience in managing an individual’s needs.
