Benefits of an Adult Day Health Center
What McGregor PACE Provides to Seniors and Their Families
Many seniors who continue to live at home rely on family members for help managing medications and continuing with daily living activities. But what are in-home family caregivers supposed to do while they are working or tending to other responsibilities? McGregor PACE offers a solution for qualified participants: adult day care services.
There are many benefits of adult day health centers—both for participants and their family members. These are just a few:
Safety and security.
Adult day care services offer assistance and supervision to participants during the day. This brings peace of mind to both parties. The parent has a safe, comfortable place to spend their time, and the child has the solace of knowing their parent is safe.
Socialization and stimulation.
Along with providing varying medical services, meals, transportation, and other services, adult day health centers offer critical socialization and stimulation for participants. Our professionals plan and provide fun and challenging activities that promote mental stimulation, allow your loved one to engage with others, and practice important daily living skills.
Improved health and well-being.
The social stimulation and engagement provided by adult day care centers could truly add years to your loved one’s life. It can also delay the participant’s need to move to an assisted living facility. In many cases, the participant may improve their daily living skills through the activities at the center—and at-home caregivers get much-needed time to work or to relax. Sometimes knowing you will have a break allows you to go on providing in-home care for your loved one longer.
If access to an adult day health center for your parent or loved one would be a benefit to you, we invite you to contact our team to discuss eligibility and requirements.
