Do you know a Senior who still lives at home, but is suffering from isolation and boredom? An Adult Day Program is a great solution that provides these seniors with the opportunity to socialize on a daily or weekly basis and take part in stimulating group activities. There are many benefits to an adult day program.
The Freedom to Live at Home
An Adult Day Program offers care and fun activities for seniors during the day, but allows them the opportunity to go back home at night. This is a helpful benefit for those who are still able to take care of themselves in the evening at home but may want a little care and extra socializing during the day. For seniors who are no longer able to drive, Martin Luther Campus offers door-to-door transportation.
Many seniors who live on their own struggle from isolation and depression. One of the greatest benefits of an Adult Day Program is that these seniors get to develop new friendships and take part in social activities without having to schedule and plan these events themselves. At Martin Luther Campus, our Adult Day Program offers exercise, spiritual services, snacks and meals, music and special outings.
Care for Daily Living Activities
Besides getting the opportunity to socialize, Martin Luther Adult Day Program members can obtain care as well. We offer services like medication management, bathing, and physical, speech or occupational therapy for a fee.
Reduces Stress for Caregivers
Adult Day Programs give caregivers a healthy break from the responsibility of taking care of a loved one 24/7. This gives the caregiver time to balance other jobs and tasks and can reduce the possible stress and strain of the relationship between the caregiver and the patient. It’s also beneficial for caretakers who work full time, so they can still work while their loved one is safe at the Adult Day Program.
Provides a Variety of Events
Adult Day Programs usually provide members with the opportunity to take part in a variety of events and hobbies. If you have an elderly loved one who is tired of going to the same places and doing the same activities on their own, an Adult Day Program can provide a variety of different activities on a daily or weekly basis. At Martin Luther Campus, there is always a variety of fun events for our Adult Day Program members. During June 2019, the Campus Club Flew Kites, Toured the Cathedral of St. Paul, attended a Northern Clay Class and more. During the same month, our Creekside Club had a Summer Sing-a-long, a Watercolor Class and a Picnic and Yard Games at Minnehaha Falls. These varied activities keep the days from feeling stale and allow our Adult Day Club members to travel for free without having to arrange travel themselves.
