If you’re a care provider for an older adult, there’s an option available so you don’t have to go it alone. Adult Day Services at Someren Glen can provide your parent or other loved one with essential care and a stimulating social environment while giving you much-needed relief.
Life doesn’t stop when a friend or family member is sick or needs special care. Bills pile up, and day-to-day obligations need to be taken care of. You may still need to go to work or run errands. Some of that can be done by others, but not all.
Even if you can set aside your other responsibilities, caring for your loved one can take a serious toll on you. It’s easy to become worn down, stressed out and exhausted. That can put a strain on your health, personal relationships or career.
In addition, you can’t necessarily meet all your loved one’s needs on your own. If your loved one requires constant companionship, that could result in not leaving your home often enough, which can create feelings of depression and isolation, and impact your loved one’s quality of life as well as your own.
Adult Day Services at Someren Glen can provide a welcome rest. The one you care for can participate one or up to five days a week – however long you need to get a breather. It’s a no-judgment way for you to get back to your regular rhythms of life. An engaging, social and vibrant day is in store for your loved one, provided by a team of skilled and caring professionals.
Sharing your loved one’s day-to-day care creates the potential for a far richer experience for them.
Everyone needs companionship and a place they feel welcome. Adult Day Services creates a vibrant, nurturing setting that’s almost like a social club for the participant. In this warm setting, your loved one will enjoy social activities, games, music and learning opportunities that are essential to a healthy, happy life.
This healthy change of environment and new stimulation also provides respite for you, the caregiver.
Relying on Adult Day Services when you need a break gives you and your loved one the opportunity to recharge, relax and return to enjoying life together. Your loved one will receive the care they need in an intimate, caring atmosphere full of people they’ll love getting to know.
