It’s important for all of us to have daily socialization so we can stay happy and healthy. For seniors, isolation is one of the biggest risks to overall health.
Adult Day Clubs can help seniors stay independent by offering daily socialization, giving seniors a sense of purpose, providing the opportunity for seniors to still live at home and more.
The Opportunity to Still Live at Home
One of the biggest factors that allows seniors to still feel independent is the opportunity to continue to live in their own home. Adult Day Clubs are set up so that seniors can receive care and enjoy activities and socialization during the day at an Adult Day Club, but then go back to their own home at night. At Martin Luther Campus, we offer two Adult Day Clubs. The first is the Campus Club which meets at the Meadow Woods assisted living on the Martin Luther Campus. The second is Creekside Club, which meets at the Creekside Community Center.
If a senior is spending all of their time at home, they may be dependent on their caregiver for all of their daily and weekly socialization. However, at an Adult Day Club, club members can independently socialize with many people and make new friends. Making new friends and socializing with various people on a regular basis can help seniors maintain independence. The Martin Luther Campus Adult Day Clubs offer seniors social activities and care. Daily socializing can lead to a happier and more satisfying life; these activities challenge the mind and body, which may help ward off and slow the progress of memory loss.
Gives Seniors a Sense of Purpose
An Adult Day Club can give seniors a reason to get up in the morning and can give them a sense of accomplishment. Attending an activity, going on an outing, winning a game of bingo, or making a craft at an Adult Day Club can provide a sense of accomplishment and purpose for Adult Day Club members.
The structure that an Adult Day Club provides can remind seniors of their previous jobs and at the Martin Luther Campus Adult Day Clubs, many of our members tell us that they are “going to their job” or that they are “going to school” when they attend one of our Adult Day Clubs.
At the Martin Luther Campus Adult Day Clubs, club members get the opportunity to still live at home, socialize, and gain a sense of purpose by attending our Adult Day Clubs.
