An adult day care provides a planned program of activities in a professional care setting for older adults who require supervised care during the day, or those who are isolated and lonely. Adult day care programs provide seniors with meals, activities, and social interaction in a center while still receiving needed health services.
Adult day care facilities vary in terms of services, including the level of care offered. While one type of facility focuses mainly on social and recreation services, another type provides more comprehensive medical and therapeutic services. Some also centers cater to adults with specific needs, like our deaf wellness center in Brooklyn, New York, which is specially designed to meet the health and social needs of seniors who are deaf, deaf-blind, or hard-of-hearing.
Adult day services in New York gives older people with special needs an opportunity to go outside and interact with others. This gives them feelings of independence which will boost their self-esteem. Seniors enjoy having control over the activities they choose to participate in, which will increase their sense of well-being. It also allows seniors to build new friendships and enjoy peer support.
There is a growing recognition that caregivers can’t always provide all the needs of a senior or disabled adult living at home. Adult Day programs provide benefits beyond increased social interaction to education and health care.
At Deaf Wellness and Recreation Center, our social adult daycare in Brooklyn provides a safe, friendly, and, secure environment for the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard of Hearing Community. Special activities provided include recreation, wellness, culture, and education.
