How are Adult Day Care Centers Beneficial for Both Seniors and Caregivers?
At Summerset, we find there are many reasons our seniors and their families choose to participate in adult day programs. Not only do adult day care centers allow your loved one to enjoy new activities while living at home, but they also give you the option to achieve a healthy life balance as a primary caregiver.
Delay a Move to Residential Senior Care
We find that many of our families wrestle with the decision to move their loved into assisted living. It’s a tough decision for all parties involved, and many would prefer their loved one enjoys their independence and lives at home for as long as possible. Adult day care is the best alternative for those looking for a smoother transition into senior care. It gives seniors the opportunity to stay active, enjoy a social life, and receive needed assistance during the day for families who need extra help but aren’t ready to make the bigger change.
Provide Rest for Caregivers
We understand that caregiving can present unique challenges when it comes to leading a healthy, balanced life. With your day job, responsibilities, or current health, it might be difficult to provide the level of assistance that your aging loved one requires. This can create stress, guilt, and exhaustion, which may lead to a negative experience for both you and your loved one. Adult day care provides you with healthy space and the opportunity to regain balance in your personal life. You’ll also enjoy the peace of mind that your loved one is being cared for by professionals in an environment that values dignity, safety, and fun!
Improve Daily Living
While you’re enjoying the benefits of added daytime assistance, your loved one will be enjoying a wide variety of activities and social opportunities. The adult day care program at Summerset Assisted Living is a lively program, where our seniors can enjoy the comfort of a safe, familiar place while receiving assistance and entertainment.
