CADES began operation in 2005 as a community service to area elderly regardless of religious affiliation. It is a daytime structured program of services and activities for senior adults in need of care, social contact, and supervision because of either physical or mental functioning impairments.

CADES provides a safe, nurturing and caring home-like atmosphere for participants, and also provides support, education and respite for caregivers. The program is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and participants may attend 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week.  CADES is licensed by the State of Tennessee Department of Human Services to conduct and maintain an adult day care center.
