Adult Day Care Centre

With life expectancy rising, more and more of us find we need assistance as we age. SADACCA Healthcare’s Adult day care center is designed for older adults who can no longer manage independently, or who are isolated and lonely. They enable seniors to socialize with others while still receiving needed care services. At the same time, they offer carers a break from caregiving duties while knowing that their loved one is in good hands.

What is an adult day care centre?

Adult day care is a planned program of activities designed to promote well-being though social and health-related services. Adult day care centres operate during daytime hours, Monday through Friday, in a safe, supportive, cheerful environment. Nutritious meals that accommodate special diets are typically included, along with an afternoon snack.

The intent of SADACCA Healthcare’s adult day centres is primarily two-fold:

  • To provide older adults an opportunity to get out of the house and receive both mental and social stimulation
  • To give carers a much-needed break in which to attend to personal needs, or simply rest and relax

Benefits of adult day care

SADACCA Healthcare’s Adult day care offers a win/win situation for everyone in the family—not only the client or member who attends the program, but also for the family member who has primary responsibility as carer. At SHC we provide a much-needed respite for the carer, affording a break from the physical demands and stress of providing round-the-clock care.

  • A safe, secure environment in which to spend the day
  • Enjoyable and educational activities
  • Improvement in mental and physical health
