As our loved ones grow older, they often want to live at home for as long as possible.
But many seniors who live alone are often unable to manage their daily needs.
Senior wellness centers, also referred to as adult daycare centers, offer services to those who are unable to stay at home on their own.
These centers provide an excellent option for seniors in need of services and assistance for a halfday or full day.
Gives a sense of purpose: Older adults have a reason to wake up every day in anticipation of something fun and exciting.
Provides a safe environment: Seniors living alone are at a higher risk for accidents. Senior wellness centers offer personal care assistance and the peace of mind that a loved one is in the hands of compassionate professionals trained in senior care.
Medication administration: Licensed staff are available to administer medications while at the senior wellness center.
Hot, nutritious meals served family-style: Many seniors turn to processed convenience foods. Others forget to eat altogether. While at the senior wellness center, families are confident that loved ones are enjoying nutritious meals.
Exercise and recreation: Programs designed specifically for seniors help meet the need for physical exercise and mental stimulation through active choices, creative arts projects, and recreational activities, such as mini golf, table tennis, entertainment groups, cooking activities, holiday events and more.
Socialization: One of the most common concerns is isolation. Senior wellness centers create opportunities for individuals to engage in meaningful conversation and interaction with friends.
Respite for caregivers: Family caregivers and seniors who provide care for their spouses are often overwhelmed with the difficulty of coping with responsibilities and life’s day-today demands.
It’s a daunting task to manage a job, raise families and be a caregiver. Adult daycare centers allow you the time to take care of your obligations and yourself.
Affordable: Senior wellness centers are one of the most costeffective ways to provide quality care.
As the cost of private caregivers and healthcare facilities continues to rise and as seniors are now living longer than ever, senior wellness centers can help relieve the financial burden that many families are experiencing.
Senior wellness centers are a viable option to address the emerging needs of older adults by promoting healthy aging, safety, exercise and recrecreation, social connections, meaningful programs and peace of mind for families.
