  Mercycare Break
St. James Mercy Hospital

Adult Day Services
Mercycare Break is an adult day services program that provides medical and personal attention, physical therapy, and a stimulating social environment. It helps your loved one maintain dignity and independence, and gives you the time to care for yourself and the rest of your family.

For the Caregiver
Sometimes constant caregiving is more than you can take. Special medical needs may be too complicated. Personal care may require more lifting than you can handle. It can wear everyone out. And you can’t be there all the time. That’s when it’s time to take a Mercycare Break.

Facility Hours
Mercycare Break is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm.
The program may be attended all or part of a day or week.

Transportation may be arranged by our staff who will assist in making referrals to any agency which provides specialized transportation.

For the Registrant
Our staff provides compassionate care which gives the registrant a sense of...

  • Independence
  • Accomplishment
  • Security
  • Spiritual well-being
  • Dignity and pride

In a stable environment which is structured to provide...

  • Socialization
  • Daily monitoring of physical and medical status
  • Recreation
  • Nutritionally sound lunch and snacks
  • All without loss of independence or home life

The registrant must

  • Be 18 years or older
  • Have an assessment completed by our registered nurse

Mercycare Break will obtain a physician’s order before acceptance into the program.
