Adult Day Care For Seniors
You are probably already familiar with the adult day care concept. It is designed for seniors who need some assistance with daily living skills or who need companionship during the day, but who live in a home-based environment at nighttime. Adult day cares developed from the concept of the senior citizen center, where retirees and other seniors used to go for companionship and a sense of community. As populations began to live longer, some age-related diseases like dementia began to be more prevalent among the senior community, making it clear that medical-based senior day care facilities would be a great addition to services for older adults.
What Jersey Shore Adult Day Health Care Center provides
Jersey Shore Adult Day Health Care Center combines the best parts of a traditional senior center with dedicated memory care components for those users with dementia. Users get three nutritious meals each day, assistance with daily living needs, transportation to doctors’ appointments, the use of an on-site beauty parlor/ barber shop, and planned activities designed to engage and stimulate the users. In addition, users are assigned a registered nurse and a physician who oversee the patient’s medical plan and incorporate it into regular daily activities.
