Willowbrook Adult Day

Willowbrook in Newton, Iowa, was inspired by a League of Women Voters study, which first prompted Mercy Hospital to sponsor a Newton adult day program, then led WesleyLife to launch a building fund to relocate the program to its new Park Centre community. Both Willowbrook and Park Centre opened in 1992, and offer convenient tunnel access to Skiff Hospital.

Man with memory lossAs you might imagine, we bring the same passion and personalized approach to our adult day services that we bring to everything else we do at WesleyLife.

"Before Mom got sick, she got by at home with help from all of us. After she left the hospital, she was so pleased with the short-term rehab at Park Centre (in Newton) and went back home with more help from WesleyLife at Home. Now she loves Willowbrook Adult Day and couldn't be happier with all her new friends.”
John Smith, Park Centre
