At mid-stage Alzheimer's my mom used this facility for 2-3 half-days each week. She LOVED the facility and the husband & wife team who managed the facility.
They made fresh meals each day and served at round tables, family style. The main sitting room had a fireplace feature surrounded by lounge chairs. at the opposite end was a large screen HD TV at the opposite end, complete with old-time movies. The gents enjoyed indoor bowling and a separate card room, ladies enjoyed the arts & crafts room and an in-house beauty salon and a soothing Jacuzzi step-in tub (at an added cost to contractors).
The facility offered full day service M-F, and optional pick up/delivery (at added cost) for the convenience of the caregiver.
An excellent facility for my mom; she said, "I love working here, and I made new friends that are like me, I don't have to pretend to be normal at Sarah Care." For we three daughters and her husband, it was a HUGE relief to have those days of rest from caregiving knowing she was happy, safe, and well cared for.
I found Sarahcare of Campbell and probably within a month we are going to start some kind of program for my husband. I did go and visit them and I like the place very much. It is closer to my home. About the staff, what I saw was that they were very helpful and I felt like the clients or patients who were there were well attended. To me it felt like they were in their own living room. The first thing I like about this day care was that there is about an hour of sit-and-read or sit-and-speech type of exercises everyday and I think that is really critical for someone who is trying to maintain strength as they get older. Everyday they got different activities. Also they have a five-hour program that I like, so that is what I'm going to go with probably. Based on my touring, everything looks great.
