What Is an Adult Medical Day Care?
Watching your loved ones get older can be bittersweet, and it can be especially difficult when aging is accompanied by physical or mental health issues.
For those who need an extra level of care, adult medical day care is a cost-effective option that gives individuals the nursing care they need, an engaging daily social life, and the freedom to remain living at home.
This model also benefits caregivers, such as the family members of seniors who require care, by giving them an opportunity to take a break, focus on other responsibilities, or take time for social outings — while maintaining the peace of mind that they’re loved one is engaged and well taken care of.
Any senior, regardless of their state of health, can benefit from attending an adult medical day care. Those with physical, cognitive, or medical conditions will have access to quality medical care, to give them and their family members the peace of mind that they’re in good hands.
What Is a Medical Adult Day Care?
Adult medical day services for seniors are structured group programs that provide a secure environment to enrich seniors’ daily living and quality of life.
These programs include:
- Social activities – such as crafts, games, holiday parties, and more.
- Therapeutic activities – such as reminiscent music activities and pet therapy, as well as services like physical, occupational, or speech therapy.
- Transportation – to and from the medical adult day facility.
Unlike the social services provided by other adult day care facilities, a medical adult day care adds a layer of medical expertise and supervision to their activity programs.
These medical care services may include:
- Health and related support services
- Medication management and administration
- Food intake monitoring
- Blood pressure monitoring
- Podiatry care
- Physical and speech therapy
- Mental health services
At Town Square Perry Hall, we maintain a medical nurse on duty at all times, along with a highly supportive staff specially trained in care for senior citizens.
But we also take our adult day medical care one step further, with specialized memory care for those with memory loss and other cognitive impairments due to Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
Using the principles of reminiscence therapy — an approach to memory care pioneered by George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers — we engage our members in an immersive 1950s design, replicating the environment they remember from their precious formative years.
By combining social engagement, reminiscence therapy, and a strong foundation of medical care, Town Square provides a revolutionary new model in adult day care services for older adults.
