For Caregivers: Relief Through Adult Day Care

Improve the lives of caregivers and seniors with the support of adult day care. Get to know how the senior in your care can have a good experience in this growing segment of the senior care market

PRLog - Oct. 7, 2011 - DENVER -- The Society of Certified Senior Advisors has released a new article that discusses a growing trend in caregiving: approximately 44.4 million Americans are providing unpaid care to an adult loved one. With about one-quarter of the adult population taking care of their aging parents, the stress of caregiving for a senior loved one is felt wide and far. Caregivers are often in need of support and assistance to combat the added stress, and adult day services are a growing trend for supportive care outside the home without the commitment of an assisted living or nursing home.

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.
    •Alzheimer’s and dementia – some centers specialize in
     caring for patients with cognitive challenges.
