Are you caring for someone who cannot be left home alone?
Joe’s Club Adult Day Care Centers provide supervised activities and socialization to adults who cannot be left alone. This much-needed service provides a respite for caregivers enabling them to work outside of the home or to just take a break from the daily rigors of twenty-four-hour caregiving.
Services such as socialization, recreation, nutrition, transportation, supervision, basic personal care, reality orientation, and self-help training can be found in the Adult Day Care Centers. A care manager with Joe’s Club must complete an assessment of the individual’s medical, physical, and emotional needs to authorize this service.
Many federal, state, local, and private funding options exist and scholarships are available for those who show a need. Staff members of Joe’s Club Adult Day Care Centers are professionally certified, trained, and qualified to work with frail, disabled elderly with cognitive imparments.
