What is an Adult Day Care?
Adult day care centers are designed to provide compassionate care and companionship for disabled adults and older adults who need assistance or supervision during the day. Adult day care centers are non-residential centers thereby allowing your loved one to remain at home with the family. Adult day care centers support the health, nutritional, social and daily living needs of adults in a professionally staffed, group setting.
Adult day care programs offer peace of mind and relief to family members and caregivers, allowing them to go to work, handle personal business, or just relax knowing their loved one is well cared for and safe. The goal of the programs is to delay or prevent institutionalization by providing alternative care that enhances self-esteem, maintains dignity, encourages socialization with peers, and remedies isolation and loneliness that many experience. Arranging for a loved one to spend time in an adult day care can have beneficial effects on a caregiver’s wellbeing.
What activities do you offer?
We create a personalized plan of care and design activities by listening to and attending to each individual’s unique needs, interests, and abilities. Our centers have multiple rooms to allow our participants to remain independent and make their own decisions about participating in activities, book clubs, a variety of social clubs, relaxing in the quiet room, or watching movies in our onsite theatre room.
The programs and activities are structured, yet socially engaging, nurturing in a fun environment that enables our participants to avoid loneliness, to experience an overall improved quality of life, and to maintain dignity, meaning and sense of self-worth. We focus on maintaining our participant’s physical and mental health thereby enabling the participant to maintain as high a level of functioning as possible, ultimately allowing the participant to remain in their home surrounded by their loved ones as opposed to being institutionalized.
Aliviar Care’s experienced and diverse team is dedicated, hands-on and focused on the comfort and well-being of our participants. Activities are designed to engage our participants. We work with their needs. We are committed to collaborating and communicating with health care providers and other community, social service agencies.
Do you offer transportation?
Participants who have Medicaid long-term care insurance may be able to schedule transportation to and from the center via the transportation vendor contracted by the insurance company.
We can also provide you with information about other transportation options such as Access Lynx and private transportation companies who may be able to provide transportation to and from the center.
