A Long Tradition of ExcellenceFor more than thirty-one years, Adult Care of Chester County has been providing adult day services to the local community. We first opened our doors in 1983 under the name Pat's Adult Day Care Center and though we've grown, and made changes to our location and our name over the years, we still offer the personalized, from-the-heart care that has characterized us since the start. From our beginnings in one tiny center, to the variety of services offered today in three locations, ACCC has been setting the standard in adult day services from the start.
