Are you among the millions of American who provide unpaid care for an adult aged 18 or older? It’s a tough task that is tempered by love and loyalty, but regardless of how devoted you are to the aging loved one, you cannot do it all by yourself.

For many families, this is where adult day care comes in. It’s a service that can keep your loved one busy and engaged, allowing you to keep working or to take a periodic break from caregiving. Elder day care can be a godsend if you cannot afford full-time in-home care and your loved one:

  • Is frail or has dementia or other medical conditions
  • Can no longer structure their own daily activities
  • Finds it difficult to initiate activities like reading, conversation or watching television
  • Is isolated and lonely or desires peer interaction
  • Is anxious or depressed and needs social and emotional support

Our Care Services include the following Diagnoses

  • Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
  • Chronic Mental Illness
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
      • Stroke Victims
      • Multiple Sclerosis
      • Parkinson’s Care
  • Diabetes Care
  • Multiple Sclerosis

What Are the Benefits of Adult Day Care Program

Respite from Caregiving

Oftentimes, caring for a sick family member with a disease can lead to caregiver burnout. Adult day services can help relieve some of the stress, anxiety or exhaustion associated with caregiving.

Not only will you get a break from looking after your parent, but you will have predictable hours when you can work, attend to personal needs or run errands. Additionally, if your loved one enjoys day care they may feel happier overall, making it easier for you to provide care when they are home.

Remedy for Boredom

As far as your loved one goes, one of the chief benefits of adult day care is that it will allow them to participate in stimulating activities and stretch their wings. “I was surprised when I found my mom dancing in her care program,” says a current participant’s daughter.

“She would refuse to do it when my dad asked, so I would have never thought to suggest it. The brain likes change, and outside programs offer options family and loved ones would not consider.”

An Antidote to Loneliness

A second reason that day care might bring a smile to your loved one’s face is the opportunity to interact with others. Seniors who seldom see anyone outside of their own family often feel loneliness, a condition associated with depression. In addition, studies show that social isolation is linked to dementia, decreased resistance to infection, increased emergency admission and high mortality risk.

Cure for Aimlessness

Retirement can be a curse for elderly adults who no longer have a concrete reason to leave the house. As days bleed together and the weeks march on, it’s easy to fall into a rut, staying up until the wee hours and sleeping in past noon, which may lead to everything from poor nutrition to depression to increased risk of dementia.

Daily or even weekly trips to adult day care can anchor a new routine, giving your loved one a reason to get up, get dressed and get moving. Our staff ratio of 1:8 enables us to provide the highest quality care, encouraging independence and preventing premature placement in long-term care facilities.

How Can Adult Day Care Benefit Those with Dementia?

An adult day care program, especially one tailored to people with dementia, can make a world of difference to someone who is cognitively impaired. These tailored services are typically available to people with dementia who:

  • Live in their own homes or with a caregiver
  • Do not require constant one-on-one assistance
  • Have some mobility (most programs allow a self-propelled wheelchair)
  • Are continent (sometimes just bowel, sometimes bowel and bladder)
  • Are not physically or verbally abusive
  • Do not wander excessively

Dementia is a general term that describes a range of symptoms, affecting at least five million people in the US. Common symptoms include short-term memory, difficulties in performing daily activities, and inability to focus and pay attention.

Age-related dementia is progressive, meaning symptoms start gradually and get worse. Some people incorrectly refer to this type of disease as “senility,” which means that the serious mental decline is a normal part of aging. Some memory loss can be part of aging, but not dementia or Alzheimer’s.

If one of your family members has been diagnosed with dementia, we encourage you to seek assistance from Riverside Adult Day Program.

Adult day care is especially useful when people are in the early stage of Alzheimer’s and still have good social skills. (Some evidence shows that early stimulation of the type provided by adult day centers can slow cognitive decline.) Day care can also help if your loved has moderate Alzheimer’s disease, when the strain of caregiving becomes greater and burnout is a strong risk.

As a trusted care provider in Colorado, we make sure that your loved one receives personal care and maintains a connection with family, friends, and familiar surroundings, and does not feel socially isolated. We enjoy providing senior day care services for those who need a safe, enjoyable place to spend the day.
