You're not alone. According to the National Family Caregivers Association, more than one quarter of the adult population has provided care to a family member or friend during the past year. Adult Day Care Services address the medical and social needs of individuals who experience the effects of aging and/or the impact of a physical disability. Easter Seals provides choices when a loved one needs assistance with daily living, and does not prefer full-time nursing home care.
Like all Easterseals services, the adult day care services are comprehensive and individualized to meet each client's needs, family-focused to meet each family member's concerns, outcome-oriented with a goal of enhanced independence, and use public support in a cost-effective manner. The adult day care program offers a break for family caregivers responsible for a relative who is unable to function independently, but does not require 24-hour nursing care.
Participants in the program may have: a physical disability, a mental impairment, a need for special assistance with activities of daily living or have recently returned from a hospital visit. Easterseals provides a safe group environment with coordinated health and social services. Center-based care may prevent, postpone, or reduce the use of a nursing facility. It may also make it possible for someone to return to a loving home from a nursing facility. Easterseals programs provide medical supervision and health-related services on a daily basis. Nursing staff administers medications and monitors a variety of medical conditions. Most often, therapy services (occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy) are available.
