For nearly three decades, Adult Day Services, a Virginia Tech program for older adults, has helped community members live independently with their loved ones for as long as possible.
“Adult Day is a good fit for people who aren’t ready to live in a full-time care facility,” says Ila Schepisi, director of the program. “That’s why our tagline is ‘Keeping families together.’ We try to help participants remain at home for as long as possible, to provide a higher quality of life for all involved.”
In March 2019, Leslie King captured this series of portraits of participants and their loved ones.
