EADS has been providing quality, affordable day programming for adults with disabilities for almost 30 years. Whether they’re seniors with dementia or younger adults with developmental disabilities, brain injuries, or other acquired disabilities, our clients receive individualized attention and recreational programs that make for rich, meaningful days. We also provide the nursing and personal care services they need to be safe and comfortable.
A recent study by the Genworth Financial found that adult day health programs–like the ones we provide–are the most cost-effective way to care for a loved one–costing much less than home care, assisted living or nursing home care. The difference can be as much as $80,000/year. Click HERE to read more.
You can learn more about how our services by touring our website or by contacting us at (425) 867-1799 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to answer your questions and provide whatever assistance we can.
EADS has received a $1, 500 grant from the Bellevue Rotary. Last year, the Bellevue Rotary helped us replace an aging–and expensive–commercial dishwasher. This year, they’re helping us upgrade the technology in our Young Adult Achievement Center. The Rotary’s commitment to helping people with disabilities extends well beyond its support of EADS. It’s also partnering with the City of Bellevue to build “Inspiration Playground”–an amazing barrier-free playground that will be a fantastic addition to the Bellevue Downtown Park. Interested? Visit the Rotary website or click on the video link to hear a mom describe the difference it made to her daughter. Want to help? Attend the Rotary auction on May 11th. All of the proceeds go to help build the playground.
Our Young Adult Achievement Center is growing steadily. Since opening in July, 2012, the Achievement Center has added students every month and is on target to be at capacity by the end of 2013.

Our Bremerton Center opened on January 29th! We missed our target by a day–but we would have missed it by months without the help of our wonderful volunteers (including the Bremerton staff who came in on many weekends and evenings to help get the building ready). We’re also grateful to our friends at the Kitsap Unitarian Universalist Fellowship–who’ve been amazing from day one.
We’re already missing many of the friends we made during our four+ years on Bainbridge Island, but we’re glad to be back in Bremerton area. Our new center, at 414 Perry Ave NE, Bremerton, is beautiful and will be much more convenient for families in Bremerton, Silverdale, Port Orchard and the surrounding area.
We’ll be at the “Challenges in Caregiving” conference being held for family caregivers on June 3rd in Tukwila. Click on the image below for more information.
