New Day Adult Day Care Center
301 Ebbtide Drive
North Palm Beach, FL, 33408
Our goal at New Day Adult Care Center is to find or provide whatever services are necessary to keep people in their own homes and in the community as long as possible. While the participants are with us during the day, it is our job to maintain the highest standards of care and enjoyment for our participants but, it is our loving and compassionate staff that makes it come true. Our dedicated and caring staff shares the mutual vision of improving the quality of life for dependent adults and their caregivers.
New Day Adult Care Center offers a refreshing approach to adult care services: An affordable alternative to assisted living or nursing home care. Our unique program offers seniors a safe, supervised, home-like environment with wellness activities, intergenerational programming, personal care, excellent nutrition, and medical supervision. Participants attend New Day during the day and return to their home and loved ones in the evening.
New Day Adult Care Center (New Day) is a nonprofit mission of Faith Lutheran Church of North Palm Beach seeking to reach God’s people through serving all generations. The Center is part of the Faith Lutheran Care Center, which provides an intergenerational setting. New Day is a Florida licensed adult day care that was established to serve the community on September 1, 1999. It provides a space for caregivers to bring their loved ones for a day of planned activities and health monitoring, while providing beneficial respite, education, support, advice, and guidance to caregivers, as needed. This program enables dependent adults and seniors with age-related challenges to function at their maximum.
The staff at New Day is trained in geriatric care, and is expert at dealing with the many issues that face seniors and their families, including dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke recovery, and much more.

Adult Day Care
What We Offer to Our Participants
Returning to an active life
New Day is open Monday through Friday; 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM. Flexible attendance options are available.
A safe environment
Safety is a prime concern, and our staff-to-participant ratio of six-to-one helps guarantee that seniors are supervised and secure at all times. The staff is cross-trained to provide personal care and activity leadership qualified to respond to specialized needs.
Full array of social and recreational activities
New Day offers a day of varying social and recreational activities. In addition to traditional activities like arts and crafts, music and exercise, games and outings, New Day also offers Intergenerational activities. By blending activities for adults and children, both age groups acquire an understanding of shared values and respect for individuals at every stage of life.
You can view the Monthly Calendar that includes daily exercise programs, weekly entertainment/parties, crafts and creative arts, discussion groups, poetry, specialized clubs, intergenerational activities, devotions and spiritual activities, holiday events, birthday celebrations, trips and excursions under “What’s Happening.”
Delicious and nutritious food
Nutrition is a prime focus at New Day, with a delicious, healthy morning snack, hot lunch, and afternoon refreshment served daily. Special diets and allergies are accommodated. Dinning assistance is provided, as needed.
New Day’s licensed program nurse provides medication administration, medical supervision, a monthly wellness program, as well as coordination with other health and supportive services (e.g. nutrition, therapy, counseling, nursing, etc.).
The experienced staff is able to assist with personal care, including assistance in the bathroom. For an additional fee, New Day is also able to offer personal services: shaving, shower, laundry, nail care, and shampoo and blow dry.
Many times a participant may need special rehabilitative services, such as physical therapy, speech, etc. New Day will work with you in contracting outside resources to come to New Day or your home to provide the needed service.
Beautiful home-like surroundings
New Day is a premier and innovatively designed intergenerational facility that was purpose-built to provide a much-needed service to the community. The interior arrangements, furnishings and activity areas allow for fun, comfortable peer interaction, and a host of special programs. New Day is bright, cheerful and is your loved one’s home away from home.
Every Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 PM, New Day offers a special one-hour Parkinson Program. This program consists of Parkinson-specific exercises, vocal training, and stretching.
Trying to juggle the many responsibilities that a caregiver faces is often very difficult and overwhelming. New Day provides a safe and caring space for caregivers to bring their loved one while they continue to work, take time to rest and relax – allowing themselves a break from always being available, take care of postponed personal business, or pursue personal interests.
Education and support
In addition to the day program for dependent adults, New Day offers caregiver support. The fourth Thursday of each month from 6:00 – 7:00 PM, New Day’s Caregiver Educational Support Group gathers together to provide a supportive and compassionate space for caregivers of dependent adults to talk openly about their struggles, to learn various coping strategies, share resources and explore ways to alleviate stress. The idea is to take care of yourself so you can effectively care for others. Respite is offered for these meetings, free of charge.
In addition, throughout the year New Day offers Educational Seminars and an annual Health Fair that are intended to help the caregiver and other family members with their roles as caregivers.
Advice, guidance and referrals
Experienced staff is always available as a resource to offer advice to caregivers and to assist in finding appropriate services in the community.
