Find an Adult Day Care
Do you have an elderly or disabled person in your family who isn’t ready for a nursing home, but needs social stimulation and help with daily tasks of living during the day? (cooking, taking medicine, etc.?)
Adult Day Care centers might be the answer for you. These centers step in the caregiving gap, providing services families need so caregivers can work or attend to other pressing needs during the day. Most offer nutritious meals, supervision to prevent wandering, medication disbursement, and social activities that help combat loneliness. Caregivers pick up their loved one at the end of the day, knowing their loved one has been well tended in a safe, stimulating social environment.
There are two types of adult day care: adult social day care and adult day health care. Adult social day care provides social activities, meals, recreation, and some health-related services. Adult day health care offers intensive health, therapeutic, and social services for individuals with serious medical conditions, as well as those at risk of requiring nursing home care.
No matter what the level of medical care provided, every adult day care center strives to offer its clients a safe, stimulating environment that boosts their self-esteem and quality of life.find a provider
