Exploring the Benefits of Adult Day Care Services for People with Dementia and Their Caregivers
If you have a family member with dementia, you’ve probably faced your loved one’s growing need for care. Many people immediately begin looking at full-time home care. However, this may not always be the best solution.
A majority of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia prefer to stay in their own homes, and their loved ones usually want to choose this option as well. But it’s not always feasible for family members to provide all the necessary care because of work, school, or other obligations, and the parties involved may not want to choose professional in-home care for various reasons. Adult day care is an alternative that’s increasing in popularity because it offers many benefits for those with dementia and their caregivers at a lower out-of-pocket cost.
At Town Square, our reminiscence-focused adult day services are uniquely suited to supporting people diagnosed with dementia from the very earliest stages, and we also offer expert, compassionate help for caregivers. Contact us today to learn more, or read further to find out about the areas in which our innovative, social, and fun senior day care can be beneficial.
Our Dementia Care Is Covered by Many Benefits
Town Square offers adult day services on a private-pay basis, but there are many forms of coverage that can defray much of the cost, and our members and their families may not initially be aware they qualify for these benefits. When you are considering Town Square, our team will be happy to guide you through the process of benefit use and advise which may apply, such as veteran’s benefits, long-term care insurance, or others.
Town Square Maintains a High Standard of Professional Care
Town Square is staffed by professionals who have been trained specifically to care for individuals with dementia. We provide a safe environment for everyone, and thanks to our qualifications, you can have peace of mind and get the break from care that you need to revitalize, knowing your family member is in excellent hands whenever they’re at Town Square.
Getting a respite at the right time is essential for your health, which indirectly benefits your loved one too. You all get the best of both worlds: the person with dementia can age in place, and their family members have time off to work, run errands, and engage in other activities without worry.
There are many other advantages to bringing your family member to Town Square:
- You can coordinate outside care with your preferred providers for specializations like physical therapy, audiology, counseling, and podiatry.
- We can connect you with convenient transportation from your loved one’s home to our center through a trusted third-party provider.
- Town Square offers a unique adult day care model that is particularly well suited to individuals with Alzheimer’s and memory loss, and our care includes a robust social component.
Socialization Is Vital for People with Dementia
Studies show that socializing and engaging in intellectual activities has positive health effects for older people who are cognitively healthy and those who have dementia or another memory condition alike. That’s why Town Square embraces an innovative system developed by George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers.
Our replica of a classic American town from the middle of the 20th century leverages the power of reminiscence and lets members call on all their senses to find comfort, fulfillment, and joy. Our focused activity areas, called storefronts, present an immersive experience that includes:
- Vintage car appreciation
- Viewing and discussing classic movies, musicals, and shows
- Music and dancing
- Artwork and handicraft creation
- And much more
Town Square’s members enjoy a fulfilling day in an environment that feels familiar and yet offers something new each time. And you will appreciate knowing your loved one is professionally cared for and having fun in a supportive environment surrounded by enthusiastic peers.
