families have more choices in selecting care for their loved ones.
With life expectancy continuing to rise, more and more of us need assistance
as we age. While there are many different types of senior care available, adult day care centers are designed for older adults
who can no longer manage independently, or who are isolated and lonely. Sometimes family members or primary
caregivers may feel reluctant to use adult day care services because they are unfamiliar, or because a loved one is hesitant
to try something new.
The Wells Nursing Home, Adult Day Health Program is located in a specially designated
area of Wells House. The Program offers all of the services of a nursing home in a day setting.
Adult Day Health Program is a community-based program similar to adult day care but designed for elders and persons with disabilities
who need a higher level of care, but can still benefit from receiving services in a group setting. Services provided include
physical, occupational and speech therapies, nursing supervision, monitoring of vital signs, blood glucose, blood pressure,
and medications, assistance with bathroom visits, dietary counseling and supervision, psychological counseling and an individualized
plan of care. All services are supervised by trained geriatric specialists.
