Terms to Know About Adult Day Care Centers

Adult day care centers are a great alternative to full-time assisted living arrangements. If an aging loved-one lives at home but you also work full-time, sometimes it's not an option to leave the elder unsupervised. Centers are also an option if you're looking to prevent or delay long term institutionalization. Before choosing an adult day care, it's important to understand what these centers can provide for your loved ones when you cannot be home.

  • Socialization - This might seem obvious, but socialization is an often overlooked aspect of senior care. When seniors are experiencing significant health problems, social activity can lift spirits and improve overall quality of life. Socialization involves art activities and music programs. Adult day care centers can assist in keeping a positive outlook for your family.
  • Respite Care - Perhaps you don't need long-term day care, but just want a break from the live-in situation to catch up on other life matters. Respite care provides your loved-ones with nurses, meals, and activities on a temporary basis. This can be especially helpful with Alzheimer and dementia patients.
  • Medical Care - Not only are there nurses on staff to assist in case of an emergency, but team members also monitor medications and provide health screenings for preventative care.
  • Therapy - Since geriatric patients are more sedentary, it's important to keep their bodies strong. Adult day care centers often provide physical therapy and appropriate exercise routines. Those in need can also receive speech or emotional therapy as well.
  • In-House Service - While all adult day care centers provide basic medical and emotional support, others offer more luxury and pampering with hair salons, manicures, and massages.

    Once you understand the basic offerings of an adult day care center, you can begin your search for a center that best fits your needs.

    Adult day care centers give elderly people the option to socialize with each other, receive basic health care services, and enjoy activities throughout the day. Some adult day care centers also have services specifically designed for disabled or handicapped seniors. There are several facility options to consider when choosing a center for seniors. Privately owned options often have the highest level of care, but they tend to cost more money. Nonprofit and public options, while less expensive, could have long waiting lists. The types of social activities and counseling that are offered, however, usually depend on the facility, not whether they are run by a private or public organization. Some adult day care companies focus on the needs of disabled and handicapped seniors. They might, for instance, provide transportation services for those in the community. They might also have regular outings to help ensure that elderly people maintain contact with the world. Nurses who have been trained to assist patients who have dementia and other disabilities often know how to help those at the facility more than those who have not been properly trained. Seniors with medical needs might also need to look for programs that offer meals that meet specific nutritional requirements. Nursing assistants at the facility might even be on call to help those who cannot feed themselves because of disabilities. You can learn more about the programs, transportation options, and prices at your local adult day care centers by searching for their websites online. This will give you information that is specific to each center.
