Alzheimer's Adult Day Care Programs

In the U.S., there are nearly 15 million Alzheimer's and dementia caregivers. Often, family members are the majority of those who provide care. We all want nothing but the best for our family members, and that certainly includes the very best living and care options.

That said, if your loved one is living in your home or you are providing care in their home, you know that caregiving is hard work and can be emotionally tiring and physically overwhelming. Not only are you working to ensure the wellbeing of your loved one, but you, as the caregiver, are trying to keep up with your family, job and social life. How do you know when it's time to reach out and ask for help?

Relief from caring for someone with Alzheimer's is essential to your emotional well-being and your relationships with your family, friends and the person you are caring for. You likely would want to consider an adult day care program if:

  • You are worried about their safety when left alone
  • Your loved one is unable to provide themselves a structure for daily activities
  • You would like for them to have the opportunity to socialize with others while you are away from the home – this helps to keep them happy and healthy – and you, too!

By enrolling your loved one in adult day care, you get the peace of mind knowing they are safe and in good hands.
