An Adult Day Program is a great resource to help your loved one with dementia because it can provide socialization, stimulating activities and assistance with personal care. Maintaining an engaging routine is one of the best ways to treat dementia.
Socialization and Stimulating Activities
Daily socializing can lead to a happier and more satisfying and purpose-filled life; these activities challenge the mind and body, which may help ward off and slow the progress of memory loss. At Martin Luther Campus, Adult Day Program members get to bond with new friends through socializing, events, and stimulating activities. Some of the group activities that we provide are bingo, dances, trivia, exercises classes, fun and educational outings and more! Our Adult Day Program members especially love the included outings and the transportation we offer in Bloomington. Many of our Adult Day Club members lovingly call these programs school or work – it provides the same sense of stability and socialization as these familiar routines.
Many people who have dementia can still remember stories, songs and pop culture from years past. Reflecting back on the music of the good old days can bring happiness to people who have dementia who are struggling with remembering what happened yesterday. An Adult Day Program that provides music (especially music from the big band music era) and the opportunity to attend musical events can help with improving the overall mood of a person with dementia.
Assistance with Personal Care
Care assistance is not only helpful for the person who has dementia, but it can also give their caregiver at home a break. At our Adult Day Program, we provide each member with an individualized care plan, monthly health monitoring and assistance with personal care. If your loved one needs extra help with bathing, medication management and therapy (physical, speech, or occupational) we offer these services for a fee.
If your loved one enjoys the idea of going to fun events and meeting new people at an Adult Day Program, but he or she still wants to have down time as well, an Adult Day Program can be flexible to meet these needs. At Martin Luther Campus, our Adult Day Program offers members the opportunity to choose how many times a week they want to attend and if they want to come for a full day or a half day. This also allows caregivers to coordinate around their own schedules.
Through an Adult Day Program, seniors with dementia can look forward to the fun activities and spending time with their new friends. If you or a loved one is interested in becoming a member of our Adult Day Program, call Amy at 952-948-5167 for more information and to schedule a tour today.
