Member Profile: Day Haven Adult Day Services
As our population ages, the number of working adults caring for elderly relatives has increased dramatically. Oftentimes, those older relatives are not living full-time in residential facilities, but rather in their own home, or the homes of their children and families. While caregivers work, they need peace of mind knowing their loved ones are in a safe and supportive environment, and socializing with their peers. Day Haven Adult Day Services is there to serve both frail elders, including individuals with Alzheimer’s disease/related dementia and their family caregivers.
Since 1984, Day Haven has been a pioneer in developing services to support elders in their desire to remain at home for as long as possible. A social model adult day services program providing day-time care, a full range of therapeutic activities, and supervision for frail older adults and those with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia.
Our goal is two-fold: to enhance quality of life and to support cognitive, social, emotional, and physical functioning.
· Adult Day Care and Respite Care
