Dahl Adult Day Center, Des Moines

Dahl Adult Day Center on the Wesley Acres campus in Des Moines opened with three participants in 1985 under the name Wesley Methodist Adult Day Center. Initially a joint venture with Iowa Methodist Hospital, the center was acquired by WesleyLife in 2004 and renamed Wesley Adult Day Services. With a grant from the W.T. and Edna Dahl Foundation in 2013, WesleyLife’s flagship adult day program was relocated to expanded, beautifully decorated quarters and was renamed in honor of the donors.

"Because of Dahl Adult Center, my husband and I both get to be individuals and do our own things throughout the day. The time apart refreshes both of us and makes us better people so we can enjoy the activities we do together."
