Oct 1st, 2009 Is Adult Day Care A Valid Option?by admin.
From "Caregivers Blog" Resources and Information that Empower Caregivers
If you or someone you love is a full-time caregiver, there is an option that you should know about called Adult Day Care. Perhaps it’s an option that you had heard about in the past, but hadn’t considered pursuing for whatever reason. If you haven’t given it a very good look before deciding not to go ahead and do it, now just might be a good moment to take a closer look and see what adult day care options are available in your area and what they have to offer both the person coming for day care and for the primary caregiver taking care of that person.
An adult day care facility can either be geared toward medical health services or it can be geared toward socialization services. If you live in a large metropolitan area of the country, it’s surely the case that there are multiple options of both types available to you; however, if you live in a more rural area, it may be the case that only one or the other is available in your region. Check out the options before you get too deep into the decision-making process of deciding if it’s a good option for your situation.
