Guardian ADHC activities

Mission and History

Guardian ADHC was founded in 1994 to promote the well-being of elders and disabled individuals who live in Western Contra Costa County, alone or with others, in order to maintain them at, or restore them to, their optimal functioning potential and to allow them to remain in the community.

The Center shares with families and others the responsibility of providing substantial care to these individuals by offering respite care from two to five days a week.

Guardian represents an alternative to institutionalization for the disabled, ill, or recuperating person in need of daily medical attention and supervision prescribed by their doctor.

Our Goals are to foster independence of our participants and to enrich the quality of their lives.
