Excerpts from article:
Caregivers are often solely responsible for providing a senior’s complete health and safety needs each day. Adult day care centers are making sure that they are expanding their services in ways that align with what is taking place at home. The benefits are two-fold: (1) Caregivers get peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are supported in the same way that they would be at home, and (2) Seniors can remain in their homes while getting beneficial care during the day.
While each center is different, they generally offer these services:
•Personal care – assistance with Activities of Daily
Living such as toileting, grooming, and eating.
•Meals and snacks – access to nutritionally balance food.
•Social engagement – interaction with other day care
center attendees and staff in planned activities.
•Therapy – access to exercise, skills training, and
physical and occupational therapies.
•Nursing – availability of health-related care such as
administering medication, taking blood pressure,
monitoring diabetes, and conducting health assessments.
•Counseling – assistance with depression and separation
•Transportation – transit to and from the private
residence and the center
•Recreation and Education – some centers offer programs
for exercise and education.
