About Downtown Cluster's Geriatric Day Care, Inc
Easing the work of caregivers by providing care to clients during the day, the Center's services also mean that seniors can remain in their own homes. Seniors spend their days meaningfully occupied-creating art, engaging in recreational activities, counseling, and leading active social lives. Those recovering from stroke participate in movement and occupational therapy, while arthritis suffers practice joint protection and work-simplification techniques. Alzheimer's clients are encouraged to speak and nurture others by interacting with toddlers in a unique intergenerational program that benefits both young and old. Transportation and nutritous meals are provided daily.
The Center's trained and dedicated staff includes a consulting physician, registered nurse, social worker, licensed art, occupational and movement therapists, recreation specialists, therapeutic assistants and transportation/program assistants. Supporting these professionals are caring volunteers, senior aides and qualified interns.
Selected by the Catalogue of Philanthropy - '2004 & 2010 Edition' as one of the Metropolitan's best small charities.
