Adult Daycare Future Services


Macon Adult Day Care is an independent family owned business founded by Christy Sheffield, has been in business for 2 years offering services to family members who have relatives that have 2 or more limitations with activities of daily living. Mrs. Sheffield and her husband Jeff have provided in-home care to these families allowing the immediate care provider a respite for the day or several hours to tend to personal business that otherwise could not be done because of the responsibilities and demands of providing care to their loved ones.
