Adult Day Services Keeps Seniors Independent Longer

Adult Day Center services may be the perfect fit for you and your loved one if you are identifying that additional care is needed as independence inevitably declines. They offer necessary supervision during the day with the participant returning home, where they feel most comfortable, at the end of the day. Adult Day Centers provide meaningful activities, an opportunity for socialization amongst peers, medication management, meals, necessary support and supervision. These services empower older adults to be independent as possible while in a positive and supportive environment.

Adult Day Center services are too often overlooked when families and care providers are looking for care for their loved ones and consumers that need supervision throughout their day. Adult Day Centers are often the perfect fit for those that still want to live at home but are not as independent as they once were. They provide respite for care providers that may have work, school or any other obligations throughout the week day. For example, Greenfield Senior Living Adult Day Center offers this respite Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 5:30pm.
Not only does an Adult Day Center offer medication management while participants are under their care but they also provide an opportunity for socialization amongst peers, meals, meaningful activities, and so much more. The meaningful activities offered to the individuals that we have the privilege of supporting include but are not limited to pet therapy, bingo, arts and crafts, exercises, cooking club, walking club, interactive games, memory activities, reminiscing, and many other engaging activities. These services provide an opportunity to create meaningful roles in the participants lives while empowering them to still be as independent as possible. We would be happy to give you a tour of our Center at Greenfield Senior Living.
