Nutritional Services: Our nutritional services meet each participant’s needs beyond general low sodium, low fat recommendations. We accommodate medical requirements and food allergies, as well as tastes. We encourage our participants to improve their diets and learn to make better nutritional choices. Each day, our kitchen serves a continental breakfast (coffee and bagel/pastry), hot lunch and afternoon snack. Nobody has ever complained about our food.
Exercise Program: Our daily exercise programs range from chair fitness and stretching for the disabled, to walking groups and breathing exercises to improve composure and induce calmness.
Entertainment Program: Our Activities Director organizes monthly birthday parties, visits from interesting speakers and performers for information and entertainment. Every day we have volunteer live entertainment. Our headliner each day comes at 1 pm. It’s kinda like a cruise ship that stays in town.
Specialized Programs: We offer specifically designed programs for our clients with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, brain injury, developmental disability and other conditions.
On-Staff, On-Site Nurse: Nurses take care to measure vital signs, as well as provide medication administration and close monitoring of diabetic, hypertensive, asthmatic and brain injured (seizure-prone) participants. For participants with life-threatening conditions, we develop emergency “action plans” with the participant’s physician and all care staff at the ADC are trained to follow each individual plan.
Transportation Service: Joe’s Club has 14 vehicles that are available for clients for transportation to and from the facility, as well as for doctor trips and labs.
Bilingual staff: Several staff members speak Spanish, and translation applications are used when needed.
