It’s tough to manage all your obligations in the modern era. Many Americans today find themselves “sandwiched” between taking care of both their own children and their parents as they age. America’s population is aging, and by 2035 78 million Americans will be 65 years old or older, outnumbering the population of children under age 18 for the first time in our history. One of the newer ways health care has been helping caregivers provide for their loved ones is assisted living and programs like adult day care.
As our population’s makeup shifts, how we provide care to seniors is changing. Assisted living facilities have grown explosively, numbering nearly 30,000 today according to the National Center for Assisted Living. With that growth comes more opportunities for adult day care, where seniors can “test drive” assisted living while caregivers meet other commitments during the day. Adult day care services allow seniors to socialize and take part in group activities. We provide staff to keep our seniors happy and healthy, and their usual caregivers get an opportunity to relax, run errands, or head to work depending on the situation.
Our day care programs go beyond offering socialization and recreation. We can provide many of the health care needs you or your loved one may have. We offer comprehensive therapy services in our Tampa facilities, including physical, speech, and occupational therapy. We also maintain memory care communities at several of our assisted living facilities. If your loved one has dementia or Alzheimer’s, many of our employees receive thorough customer service and memory care training to take care of our residents, and will offer the same quality service to adult day care visitors.
