Chautauqua Adult Day Services recently received two grants that allowed the purchase of four new recliners for the Present Center, which is the non-profit organization’s Alzheimer’s and dementia program.

The Chautauqua Region Community Foundation provided one grant through the Carl Yngve and Lucille Adamson Fund that the foundation administers. The other grant was awarded by the First Presbyterian Church Mission Fund, 509 Prendergast Ave., Jamestown.

The new chairs have replaced four recliners and provide a comfortable place for those who attend to be in a home-like setting while attending the Present Center during the day. The Present Center provides a secure, supervised setting.

Chautauqua Adult Day Services, offers senior day programs for adults sixty years of age and older who live in the community.

There is also a community recreation program that helps seniors participate in outings in the community. The sites offer pet therapy, ceramics, music programs, arts and crafts and other activities on an ongoing basis. In addition, the agency also has a Saturday Program in Jamestown which helps participants stay involved in community events and outdoor recreation. Funding is available.
