The Felician Adult Day Center began in 1990 after Sister Mary Augustine Kloza realized the significant need in the Enfield area for a program that would care for elder individuals with cognitive deficits while providing respite to their caregivers. Felician Adult Day Center is a program specializing in Adults with Alzheimer’s disease and other Dementias and frail elderly. The Felician Sisters mission has always been to care for the elderly in the spirit of Blessed Mary Angela who was born in Poland and established a community of caring in Enfield, Connecticut as well as founding community outreach services nationally.
