Adult Day Health Center Team
Our registered nurse monitors the general health of each participant whether he or she is dealing with the effects of a stroke, diabetes, heart disease, depression, memory loss or other chronic illness or disability. Each person's specific health needs are addressed in partnership with the family and doctor.
Our registered nurse provides:
- Nursing assessments and treatments, medication assistance and diabetic management
- Coordination of care with physicians, community resources and family members
Licensed therapists help people with a variety of physical abilities improve their strength and mobility through:
- Individual assessments and therapies
- Exercise and strengthening programs
- Balance and ambulation programs
- Stationary bicycle program
Participants receive an assessment by an occupational therapist every three months. A “Care Plan” is created to monitor each participant’s progress.
The social services specialist facilitates the intake process by accepting referrals and coordinating with community agencies to ensure that all services are in place for new program participants and their caregivers. Social services also:
- Administer cognitive and mood assessments
- Consult with community caregivers as needed
The activities specialist plans and implements a daily therapeutic activity program to meet physical, social, spiritual, creative and emotional needs of Adult Day Health participants.
The Center also has a team of program assistants who provide personal care, assistance with activities and food service.
