We provide a variety of benefits for seniors including:
Prolonged Independence: Adult day care centers promote a senior’s ability to remain independent longer by supplementing the assistance they receive from family caregivers with a unique program of health care services and activities. The cognitive and physical stimulation not only enhances their well-being, it delays deterioration that would necessitate placement in an assisted living facility or nursing home.
Enrichment Activities: We offer a variety of enrichment activities, such as painting, ceramics, wood crafts and cooking, which improve hand-eye coordination, provide outlets for creative expression and build self-esteem. By engaging in word puzzles, reminiscing exercises and discussions of subjects like art, history, music and current events, seniors receive cognitive stimulation that enhances mental acuity and memory function. In addition, games, outings, and special events offer opportunities for both group and one-on-one social interaction.
Appropriate Nutrition and Medication Management: Under the direction of our registered dietician, we offer a full breakfast, hot lunch, and afternoon snack. We also provide dietary monitoring/counseling and nutrition education.
Benefits for Caregivers: The benefits for caregivers are numerous. Caregivers will worry less with the benefit of more time to complete personal tasks and career responsibilities. Plus, they receive a temporary break from the demands of caregiving — without respite, caregivers are more susceptible to the effects of caregiver stress, such as depression, exhaustion and other health problems.
Better Emotional Health: Participants in adult day care services experience less boredom, anxiety and depression. They tend to be more positive-thinking, and this can actually improve overall health and well-being. Our service offers the following supportive service elements:
- Free transportation to and from home
- Coordinated care with personal physician
- A full-time nurse is on the site every day
- Daily therapeutic exercises
- Group and individual activities
- Assistance with personal care
