The MU Adult Day Connection is a university-community partnership that provides exceptional care for older adults and adults with disabling conditions. Each weekday, MU Adult Day Connection improves quality of life and provides care that is otherwise unavailable or unaffordable.


The MU Adult Day Connection exemplifies person-centered care, currently recognized as “best practice” by dementia experts and others who work with people with special needs. Person-centered care embodies the belief that individuals should be treated with dignity, respect and love. Helping people and their loved ones maintain health, independence and self-determination for as long as possible is our ultimate goal. Professional, well-trained, committed staff members are vital to this philosophy. Our centers are able to maintain a staff to participant ratio of 1 to 4, with financial assistance from the community.
