My close friend has Alzheimer's. The disease started in her late 40's she's now 56 and would probably enjoy some of the crafts and socializing an adult day care provides. She lives at home with her husband and 2 sons. She's told me how bored and lonely she gets. Would this be a good option or would having someone come to the home be better?

Hi, my Mom has second stage Alzheimer's and is needing activities to keep her stimulated and give my Dad a break. She lives in Austin, Texas. I am looking for a day care type center where she can go several times a week. Is there a list I can get to check on availability? Thank you

Hi, my mom is 59 and was just diagnosed with dementia. She has significant short term memory loss but is still able to do all ADLs including driving. Unfortunately she was fired over a year ago and I feel her decline has been precipitous since that point because she has limited social interactions, doesn't exercise, doesn't do any hobbies and just watches tv all day. She lives in Valley Stream, NY so any information on adult day care programs in the area or simple volunteer work she could do I think would help lessen her cognitive decline. Thanks.

My husband has mixed dementia. Guess he's at beginning late stage. Needs help with all ADL's. He doesn't speak much but is still somewhat mobile. He was in the county Senior center adult day care 12 hrs a week, but that didn't work as he became irratated by the noise. It got so that he physically struck out at some of the staff. It was very noisy and lots of activity there. He needs more calmness and not so much running around. But the prices in this area (33511) are very steep for a memory care not in the neighborhood of $50 a day!! More like $20-$30 an hr. By the time I drop him off, get into my vehicle, drive to the store, shop, go get him I've used 2 hrs. Therefore I don't take him. It would be really nice to have a break. Now we even have Dr appts at the same time with our PCP so there is NO seperation, EVER. Idk what will happen if the day ever comes I can't be with him 24/7.

Hello, I am looking for adult daycare for my grandfather who is in the early to moderate stage of Alzheimer's. Do you know of any centers in the Santa Clarita, CA area? Thank you.

Hello, I am looking for info to try to help my mother and father who live in Spring Hill, Florida. My mother is close to 87 and went through two surgeries about 2 months ago. She had heart surgery and then aneurism surgery. She has recovered pretty well from the surgeries but is suffering from Alzheimer's and is still in Health South rehab center in Spring Hill. She was home for a few weeks and wouldn't do the PT excersizes on her own. My dad is 90! He has done a fantastic job taking care of her up until this point. I am afraid he had reached his limit and her care is going to be to much for him now. They are both strong Catholics and my mother did volunteer work for her church year round right up until she was no longer able to help. We were wondering if you know of any programs where someone could come to their house everyday and help them. Not a nurse but someone who could work with my mom with PT and maybe help out around the house with everyday things that they are no longer able to do. We think assisted living and making them sell their house and move would be way to much for both of them. I am in Maryland and unable to help them the way I would like to. Please let me know if you know of any way to help them. Thank you SO much for your time and effort. Sincerely, Beverly Keel. 1-410-544-5995

Good morning to All! My mom is in stage three of Alzheimers and is also Diabetic. I have tried to find an agency that Medicare or Medicaid pay for Pedicure services which come to the home. I am unsuccessful; the ones I've called do not come to the home. Mom is very much uncomfortable with long nails and her walking is being affected. I've tried to help her but I am not a professional and am affraid of cutting her. I've taken her to salons but they do not want the liability. Can't blame them but something needs to be done. We live in Miami Florida so if anyone has any suggestions; please HELP us. Thank You!

DOES ANY ONE KNOW OF A ADULT DAY CENTERS IN THE BARTLETT IL LOCATION?? PLEASE NEED HELP


about 6 years ago, said...

Is there a day care facility in San Pedro California for patiences with Alzheimers. My mom is 87 and is still at home with a part time caregiver and my father. She needs to get out of the house to help give my dad some needed time alone.


over 6 years ago, said...

Alrighty then, the adult daycare program I took mom too isn't going to work for her..and therefore , me. She was mad as a hatter (to me only), demanded I take her out of there, etc. etc. We stayed for an hour's worth of Bingo, I had to play her chips, and she wouldn't touch her snack. Unfortunately, the majority of the folks there were very physically and mentally challenged. Mom has a real soft heart for people in that condition and it saddens her immensely, but THAT came out much later. So, back to square one, and other facilities which may have higher functioning folks just aren't around here. :'-(

This article offers a lot of good information that is really needed and appreciated! It is important the caregiver also takes good care oh hem/her self to avoid burnout. Adult Day Care centers are the perfect way to provide some time to unwind. A great way to relax and prevent Alzheimer's at the same time is the Kirtan Kriya meditation. Studies have shown that it improves memory, depression, anxiety and energy. For more information on the Kirtan Kriya go to www.alzheimersprevention.org.

Thank you for those responding to my messages. My prayers and hugs go out to all of you. It is so helpful to read responses to those with memory loss, and those who are caregivers. With your recommendations I will attempt to take my father to a center near his home, which deals primarily with AD. My father has become even more social as his disease progresses, so I hope he will find this a beneficial place to visit!

BEYOND EXCELLENT! The scope and content of this article as it deals in a topic too often overlooked makes it timely and important. Having dementia in the Early Stage as I do needs the attention it does not get. It needs it for our quality of life and for the cost savings available if we get help in prolonging our time in Early Stage. When we have the benefit of early detection and diagnosis while we remain independent able to continue functioning we lead a lonely life abandoned by friends and family members. They don't know what to do with us so simply don't. We are alone with nothing to do, nothing to hope and look forward to. We simply sit and wait. Wait for the bus to come to take us to the "Home". Adult Day Care is one of many activities that can help us immeasurably. It fulfills a need for company, camaraderie and companionship. It provides socialization along with intellectual and creative stimulation to our brains. This gives us a terrific boost in our lives Addressing our needs as something more than baby-sitting service makes all the difference.

My Mom participates in and Adult Day Program and it has been a Godsend for us. She is able to interact with seniors her own age, so there's a great social aspect. She gets her nails done, pedicures, blood pressue check and weight. They provide baths, if requested. They even make sure Mom makes it to the clinic to get her B12 shot. They exercise, do crafts, and there's a mass on Fridays. Oh, and the meals are fantastic. During the summer months they take little bus trips. The two most important things the ADP provides, is respect and patience. I honestly cannot say enough good things about our experience with the day program, and recommend it to anyone who'll listen. Mom had initally thought that we were sending her to a "home"...she was ready to pack her bags. I honestly thought we would try it for a day a week. She goes Tues-Fri without fail. Loves it.

Alzheimers is rampant in my immediate fami;y, I'm next, at age 66, I have memory problems. I retired from my job because I experienced memory loss in my daily conversations, and I became very stressed, which I believe only added to the memory lapses. I'm retired two months; I eat well, go for walks , have a trainer at the gym, and I'm enjoying my life. I still have memory loss,I hope to ne independent as long as I can. I truly bellieve an Adult Center is a wonderful idea! I will be looking for one in my area.


over 6 years ago, said...

I think the adult day care is a wonderful idea...problem was for me that I could not get my mother who had alzheimer's into day care because she was not social ....meaning that she did not want to play the games and watch the tv programs. Basically she was on the quite side and a loner by nature and when she got alz she just wanted to be mostly in her room rocking in her rocking chair. Anyway they were not able to take alz patients. That was in 2009 and I think things may have changed some since then. I hope so ...my mother passed away later that year. My heart goes out to all the wonderful care givers...blessings to you.

Adding to my reply above...My fear is that my father will become resentful if he feels he is being "babysat". We experienced this difficulty when we had an in-home hourly visitor.


over 6 years ago, said...

I am considering adult daycare for my father to help him socialize and to help my mom (the caregiver) to get some time for her errands, etc. I visit and do many activities with him, but it is difficult for me to spend as much time as my mom needs.


over 6 years ago, said...

Today is the first time I'm taking my 90 year old mom to adult daycare, or as I'll call it a "senior center". She has dementia, and we provide round the clock in-home care, BUT she needs to get out and definitely needs interaction with others more her age. You can only go shopping so much! Sure hope she likes it, and wants to go back; pretty sure I will. ;-)

Today was my first day visiting this site. It had alot of helpful topics that I came across. I was checking into the site because my dream and goal has been to open my own business to assist senior citizens with or without family members that need assistance with daily living activities and socialization skills. I have been a nursing assistant for over 15 yrs, I started this field after my grandfather who raised me became ill. I came out of college to help my grandmother with him at home. I would like to open up a center for seniors in my area, Pitt County,N.C. and really feel this site has expanded my desire even more. I have debated on this for too long, being I promised my grandfather 6 yrs ago at his bedside before his passing I would follow my dreams because I have experienced how much it is needed for some help with respite care for not just the patient/client, but so much more for the caregiver and family trying to keep their loved one at home with them. I know opening my own business up will be a tough mountain to climb, but with my Father above and this website along with my dedication and determination, I know I will be a great asset here in Eastern North Carolina. May you all be blessed.

Today was the first time I've ever visited your site. I came across it looking for information regarding employment opportunities in the field of Adult Day Care available in my community;MONTCLAIR,CA 91763;As I am very interested in beginning a career in elder care,I'm just not sure in what capacity.I recently operated my own Home Daycare for infants and children, but gave it up because both my sister , who was part owner and I became burnt out and unfulfilled after just 3 years. I am currently providing care and management for my 76 year old mother who in the last 10 years despite generally good health; has incured a number of serious,but managable health issues. All of which I've been her primary caregiver with some help from 0nly (1) of my (8) siblings; who are all except for (1) less than 1 hour away! Sound familiar to any one out there! Because my mom only needs me part time right now, I have some time to start pursuing this interest in a posssible career. I think I could be good at it with the right training and experience.I feel blessed to be able and available to care for my mom ,however necessary, as she moves through the aging process and all that comes with it. BLESSED! About your site: very interesting, insightful ,informative,helpful; very NECESSARY!!!! THANK YOU.

What is a great Dementia Care Daycare center in Seattle?


over 7 years ago, said...

Moore County does NOT have adult day care. We need this so much. My husband needs the stimulation of such a program not a babysitter. I am getting some respite care but do not always need 2-3 hours and a structured environment would be a blessing. We live in Pinehurst and my husband is entering his 7th year of Alzheimers

The staff at medical adult day cares like Active Day http://www.activeday.com are trained to work with clients like your mother. Nearly half of the clients that attend adult day care have dementia or other chronic conditions. Many centers provide personal hygiene services and can handle behavioral issues. If you can find a center near you, it will be the best thing for you and for your mother.

Everyone keeps telling me to get my 89yr old mom into adult day care. That she needs more activity. She has later stage Alzheimer's. I can't imagine getting her and keeping her there. She refuses to bath, when I do get her cleaned up it takes hours of argument and yelling (her yelling at me). She stinks and is dirty. She frequently says inappropriate sexual things in conversation. I doubt they would keep her if I could even get her there. The article is very good. These services are wonderful for the person with the abilities to attend.
