Caring for a spouse or elderly parent going through the stages of Alzheimer’s disease or some other form of dementia can be overwhelming. In Sussex County the need for adult day care is greater than ever as the older population continues to grow at a rapid pace.
To meet that growing need, the Easter Seals Adult Day Care Program in Georgetown is designating additional program space to provide center-based day care for adults with all forms of dementia, and, in particular, persons with early and mid-stage Alzheimer’s.
The Memory Care Program, partially funded by the Delaware Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities, will include modifications such as secured doors and special program areas designed to better serve families. While their loved one is being cared for by a staff consisting of a full time nurse, activity coordinators and persons who provide meals, caregivers can experience a day of relief to catch up on sleep, shopping or other activities. Our regular Easter Seals Adult Day Care Program will continue to run concurrently, providing day services for adults with physical disabilities. For more information about the Memory Care program, contact Greg Artis at (302) 253-1111 or email Greg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
