Respite Care and Adult Day Care
Kalamazoo MI – Adult day care has grown rapidly over the past twenty years. Many of todays seniors participate in programs which provide respite to caregivers as well as assistance to adults living alone.
Day care for adults provides a mentally stimulating environment to help adults maintain or improve their level of functioning. Adult day care provides recreational and social activities for adults during times when they might otherwise be alone. It also provides caregivers with a needed break to manage their own affairs and to have their own private time.
The goals of an adult day care program include promoting the individuals maximum level of independence, rehabilitation, socialization, and peer interaction. Planned activities are based on the individual needs, interests, and abilities of the participants.
Individuals who participate in adult day care include the physically or mentally impaired, socially isolated, and others with such conditions as Alzheimers disease, heart disease, stroke, Parkinsons, and other physical or mental handicaps.
Fees may vary for care as well as for other services such as transportation, meals, and various types of health care.
