The Adult Day Center is a nonprofit agency committed to providing high quality, affordable medical and social day care services for disabled and elderly residents of Somerset County, NJ. The center members created a mural that was designed to depict a journey, from feelings of confusion and anxiety, that some had felt at home, to tranquility and serenity when they joined the day center and made friends there. Images included a jungle scene, tiger for strength and power, birds and flowers, a beach scene with hammock and hut, to the ocean, boat, mermaid and a sunset.
