Do you want to keep your loved one at home, but find yourself overwhelmed by some of their daily care needs? If so, you may want to consider an adult day care program like Middlesex’s own South Amboy Adult Day Health Care Center. An adult day care is a great way to ensure that your loved one’s needs are being met, while allowing you to work, run errands, or simply get some much-needed caregiver down time.
If you have never visited an adult day care center, you may not understand exactly what they do. Obviously, they provide some supervision and care for an elderly person. However, while the adult day care label may remind you of a childcare center, adult day cares perform significantly different functions. First, an adult day care can provide assistance with daily living needs. For example, as a caregiver, you may find it physically challenging to help your loved one with bathing, dressing, and other self-care needs. At South Amboy Adult Day Health Care Center, you can arrange to get assistance with self-care. Second, an adult day care facility focuses on health, and, in addition to giving patients access to an in-house healthcare team, can arrange transportation to doctor’s visits and well-checks. Third, at an adult day care facility, the staff is aware of the dietary restrictions that often accompany old age and can ensure that your loved one has delicious and nutritious meal options that comply with any dietary restrictions. Finally, keeping mentally active is a proven way to help people stay mentally alert; at South Amboy Adult Day Health Care Center the patients may choose between a wide array of activities, all selected with the goal of helping them stay both physically and mentally active.
If you are looking for a tool that helps you provide in-home care for your loved one, but recognizes that you cannot do it all yourself, South Amboy Adult Day Health Care Center can provide the backup you need to care for an elderly loved one.
