Adult Day Services
Welcome to Pleasantries Adult Day Services—a unique social day program uniquely designed to support, connect and provide meaningful engagement for adults living with cognitive impairment in the MetroWest Boston area.
Pleasantries opened its doors in the fall of 2008 as one of the only social day programs in Massachusetts based out of a residential home. Over the course of the past decade, Pleasantries has supported over 150 guests and their families.
guests Per Day
Pleasantries caps daily attendance at 15, facilitating a intimate and personal environment for our guests and staff to go about their day with ease, calm and normalcy. Our tranquil home allows guests to feel as though they’re visiting a friend’s house versus a more traditional “facility.”
While it’s challenging to measure subjective data, families of Pleasantries’ guests often tell us that having Pleasantries as part of their care plan for their loved one helped extend their time at home, and delayed their transition to a long-term care facility by over 18 months.
“My mother loves coming to Pleasantries. She is 90 years old and feels at home and comfortable with the staff and the other guests. She loves to play the piano, take walks and socialize with everyone. She lost her husband this summer and now lives with me, her daughter. I work full time and Pleasantries has allowed my mother to be in a home like atmosphere where I know she is cared for and is so happy. I cannot be happier with the staff and loving care that she is given.” - Linda G., Sudbury, MA
