Adult Day Health

What are Adult Day Health Services?

Adult day health services help our aging parents and other seniors that we care about live fulfilling lives. Learn more in our latest blog post.

We all want what’s best for our aging parents and other seniors in our lives. 

If they cannot safely be home alone without help, this could mean finding a support system, like adult day care, to help them live independently 

Below, we’ll talk about what adult day health services are, how they can help, and Sevita’s specific services. 

What are Adult Day Health Services?

Adult day health services are health and social services for older adults or adults living with disabilities who require daily help with things such as meal prep, taking the right medicines, or safely getting exercise.

The goal of adult day health services is to help aging adults stay independent, improve their overall health and quality of life, and provide a safe place for them in the community.

Adult health care services are usually provided in a community-based area, such as a senior center or a specific adult day care facility. They are filled with a team of professionals, including:

  • Nurses
  • Therapists
  • Social workers 
  • Recreational specialists

All of these professionals work together to provide different services to meet the needs of each participant.

How Can Adult Day Health Services Help? 

Adult day care services provide many benefits to those who need extra support and care. These services help older adults, people living with disabilities, and those with health conditions live a fulfilling life. Here are some of the ways that adult day health services can help:

  • Socialization - Many older adults or people living with disabilities can easily become more isolated from the community as the age. Adult day health services allow people to socialize with their peers, join group activities, and build relationships with others. We all thrive by having loving supportive relationships in our lives, and community usually helps all of us feel more connected and happy.

  • Medical Care - Adult day health services offer different medical services and support to those who need it. These services may include monitoring of vital signs, giving medications, and helping with personal care and hygiene. This level of care can help individuals manage their chronic health conditions more effectively and reduce their risk of hospitalization.

  • Therapeutic Programs - Many adult day health services offer therapeutic programs, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. These programs can help individuals improve their mobility, build strength and flexibility, and regain lost skills. This can be especially beneficial for those who are recovering from an injury or illness.

  • Respite Care - Caregivers of older adults and people living with disabilities may find it tough to balance their responsibilities at home and at work. Adult day health services provide a safe place during the day while family is away at work or school. Instead of being alone, this gives seniors a safe place to spend that time.

  • Fun Activities - Many unique adult day care services offer fun activities for participants, such as art and music therapy, games and puzzles, and group outings. These activities can improve cognitive function, boost mental and emotional well-being, and provide fulfillment.
