Adult Day Services


In 2006, Frontier Community Services developed an Adult Day alternative called “Options” for individuals with developmental disabilities who reside in Ross and neighboring counties. Options is based on the vision and determination to create meaningful experiences for adults who are not employed in the community or who work less than five days a week.


Options is person-driven with services and activities created based upon the needs and desires of those who attend. Options places great value on community life, and social activities in the community make up a significant portion of the person’s experience.  We strive to develop skills and experiences that lead to greater independence, community membership, relationship-building, self-direction, and self-advocacy.


Activities at Options are as grand and numerous as the wishes of the participants, creativity of the staff, and the resources available. A few of the activities offered include: 

  • Arts & Crafts

  • Computer Activities

  • Sensory Exploration

  • Hiking

  • Museums

  • Attending Fairs, Festivals

  • Movies

  • Current Events

  • Fitness & Exercise

  • Utilization of Community Resources

  • Picnics

  • Restaurants & Coffee Houses

  • Building Connections with People in the Community

  • Person-Driven Activities within the Community

  • Healthy Lifestyle Learning

  • Home & Garden Skills


These social activities are a productive alternative to traditional day programming and serve to enrich a person’s life.
