Life Care meets many of the physical, mental, and social long term needs of impaired adults. It is an important community-based option designed to allow people to remain in their homes, delaying and/or preventing nursing home placement. Life Care offers services to enhance the participant, caregivers, and families lives:  nursing care (medical and nutritional monitoring), personal care (including bathing, toileting, diapering), and structured daily activities including music therapy, exercise, daily devotions, and social events that keep participants engaged and enjoying life to their fullest capabilities.

Caregivers and other family members are able to continue employment and social responsibilities with a minimum of interruption knowing that their loved one is in a safe, loving environment under the supervision of trained, licensed professional staff. According to Partners in Caregiving, “For every person enrolled in an Adult Day Health Care Center, two people get their life back: the individual and the caregiver.”

Rutherford Life Care opened in 2001 with 6 people, today, the center serves over 50 families and has expanded and upgraded the facility in order to meet the needs of the people served. The center is staffed with a Director, Nursing Staff, and Direct Care Staff. All staff are trained to meet the individual's needs.
