We understand that caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease can be an emotional and physical task. Family members and caregivers give up so much of their own lives to take care of their loved one. Our goal is to help relieve that task and provide them with a trusted Alzheimer’s care service.
Self-Help for the Elderly’s Alzheimer’s Day Care Resource Center is a licensed facility that serves seniors and adults with moderate to severe stages of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Adult day care offers people the opportunity to be social and to participate in activities with others. Individuals are chaperoned by trained caregivers in a safe and secure environment. Full-time caregivers are provided with a break during the day to attend work, run errands or complete necessary tasks. Every individual with dementia suffers from different symptoms and experiences the disease differently. This is why care plans are developed for each participant, based on their unique and individual needs. Services may include:
- Nursing services
- Rehabilitation services
- Dietary counseling and nutrition education
- Psychiatric and psychological services
- Personal care services
- Medical social services and counseling
- Support group for participants and caregivers
- Recreational and social activities
- Group exercises
- Field trips and excursions
- Holiday celebrations
- Transportation to and from homes if needed
- Hot, nutritious breakfasts and lunches
We have a multi-disciplinary team that assesses the medical, psychological, and functional status of each individual. Based on their specific needs and requirements, an individualized care plan is made for each participant. Our staff knows multiple languages to communicate with each participant. Languages include English, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Mandarin, Taishanese and other Chinese dialects.
Our adult day care facility is licensed by the State Department of Public Health. Referrals for participants can come from home care services, hospitals or other healthcare professionals. Self-referral may be possible as well. To become a participant, individuals must first receive written approval from their primary care physician. Proof of tuberculosis clearance within the past 12 months is also a requirement. Medi-Cal covers the cost of day services for individuals that qualify. Private pay rates based on level of services needed are also available.
Relieve your stress and provide your loved one with a day full of activities and safe supervision. Call Self-Help for the Elderly today to learn more about our Alzheimer’s care.
