Friendship House* Adult Day Care

Friendship House* Adult Day Care by the Visiting Nurse Association Serving Morris County, New Jersey

Caregivers whose loved ones have attended Friendship House, in their own words:  

"Friendship House has been a life saver for me as a caregiver and stimulating for my wife who has dementia."

"Friendship House helps me balance caring for my 92-year-old mother, my 14-year-old daughter and myself. Mom looks forward to the days she goes to Friendship House and it's the highlight of her week."

Friendship House, a social adult day center operated by the Visiting Nurse Association of Northern New Jersey, is a safe haven where individuals with physical and cognitive challenges can find acceptance, companionship and practical assistance while their primary caregivers are afforded the peace-of-mind required to take a respite. The goal of Friendship House is to bring some joy into the lives of its clients and then return them to the care of loved ones who are refreshed by the "off duty" time we have provided.

Friendship House is located at 130 Powerville Rd., Boonton, NJ 07005.
