What is Adult Day Services?
What is Adult Day Services? Caregiving for a parent, spouse, family member or friend is both wonderful and exhausting. What are you to do if you need to go to work, attend an appointment or simply take time for yourself? Golden Age Adult Day Center is the perfect answer.
Adult day services are defined by National Adult Day Service Association as “coordinated programs of professional and compassionate services for adults in a community-based group setting. Services are designed to provide social and health services to adults who need supervised care in a safe place outside the home during the day. ”Golden Age Adult Day Center allows seniors to enjoy safe and productive days in a caring environment, while returning to the comfort and familiarity of home at night.
For many family caregivers, it can be difficult to admit that it’s time to get extra help caring for your loved one. The issues can become even more complicated when elderly loved ones, who have been used to living their whole lives independently, are opposed to getting outside “help” or allowing strangers to help them with daily tasks.
However, Golden Age Adult Day Center can be a tremendous help to everyone involved, and the best time to explore the options is before services are needed.
