Adult Day Programs
Adult Day programs can be particularly beneficial for seniors who are transitioning themselves back into the social aspect of their life. Sometimes following a health situation, rehab and hospitalization can cause seniors to isolate themselves. We find that being exposed to various activities not only aids in shifting back into a healthy social life, but can stimulate mental and physical health as well.
Adult Day programs include enriching activities, healthy meals and access to rehabilitation therapies and health services. Seniors who participate in day programs have the opportunity to enjoy a supportive social life combined with attentive health care and a wealth of conveniences. They are able recharge with a range of services including health and medication monitoring, fitness classes and even spa treatments.
