Day Services - a chance to revive and refresh.
Adult Day Care Services
No matter how old we are, it’s nice to have new experiences and to make new friends. That’s not only true for older adults, but it’s true for those who care for them too. Even a short break can refresh and revive a caregiver by giving them a chance to catch their breath.
Our Adult Day Services and Respite Care are excellent opportunities for people still living in a private home with a well spouse or an adult child caregiver to come and enjoy the same activities, outings, nutritious meals and support as one of our community’s residents. Full- or half-day accommodations are typically available 7 days a week. Many caregivers find that our adult day care gives them the much-deserved break, while also providing structure and stimulation for their loved one.
What is Adult Day Services?
Adult Day Services at an Ascension Living community lets seniors participate in community activities and programs while being supervised by our staff on a whole- or half-day basis. They can also participate for weeks at a time. This gives caregivers a break to take care of other personal matters, and gives you or your loved one more social options.
