Encore Adult Day Enrichment Center Opens its Doors to Caregivers on Saturdays

Specialized Alzheimer’s community becomes North Texas’ first to provide care on Saturdays. Encore Adult Day Enrichment Center has become the first specialized and freestanding community for memory care day services in D/FW to open on Saturdays.

 
PRLog - Jan. 6, 2012 - PLANO, Texas -- (PLANO, Texas) Jan. 5 – At-home caregiving is at an all-time high due to the U.S. recession and can be stressful for those who have no alternatives. To help provide a much-needed respite for caregivers, Encore Adult Day Enrichment Center (Encore) has become the first specialized and freestanding community for memory care day services in North Texas to open its doors on Saturdays.

“It may not seem like a major topic, but when you consider that caregivers of those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia rarely get a break – 340,000 in this state – having a free Saturday would be a luxury,” said Encore’s Community Director Gary Allinger. “More than 85 percent of full-time, at-home caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s are relatives. Weekdays are usually spent sharing duties while breaks are rare over the weekends. I hope we can be a resource to caregivers in Plano, North Dallas and across North Texas.”

All guests of Encore on Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., will be provided a full day of activities and enrichment, as well as a full breakfast, lunch and snack catered to the needs of those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Activities are all therapeutically associated with memory care and include art, dancing, exercise, pets and even video games.

“Our daily enrichment activities are designed to be holistic – catering to the physical, mental and spiritual needs of our guests,” said Allinger. “When any caregiver trusts us with their loved one, they will know we are working on their relatives’ sensory interaction, social engagement and acuity level while they are away for the day.”

The Plano-based day stay community located at 6505 W. Park Blvd. is managed by Constant Care Family Management. This national leader in memory care assisted living is based in Irving and also manages all Autumn Leaves communities across the country.

Encore will celebrate the new Saturday respite hours with an open house to the entire community, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 7. For more information on Encore Adult Day Enrichment Center, call (972) 428-5400 or visit www.EncoreDayStay.com.
