Activities of Daily Living

Adult Day Service is designed especially for older adults who want to remain in the community but who cannot be home alone during the day due to a physical, social and/or mental impairment. Adult day service also provides respite for family caregivers, especially those who are employed outside the home, and socialization for isolated older adults. Services offered in adult day service centers include health, medication supervision, personal care and recreational/therapeutic activities. Nutritious lunches and snacks are served, and special diets are provided. (www.illinois.gov/aging)

Our staff are trained to assist with activities of daily living in the areas of feeding, toileting, continence and transferring within the center.

Activities of Daily Living

Bringing Energy, Enthusiasm, and Enlargement to the community.

Health & Wellness Care

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. (http://www.who.int/about/mission/en/)

We will assess the stabilization of each disease process during admission and with each subsequent visit.  It is our goal to assess the health needs at the beginning of the day to avoid emergency care whenever possible.

Therapies

Geriatric frailty” is the result of decline in multiple physical functions and health that some individuals experience as they get older.  It is important to recognize that frailty is not a natural result of aging, but instead a condition. While 30% of older adults in the U.S. are considered frail by age 90, 70% are not.  Frail elderly persons often experience muscle weakness, falls, balance and walking issues. Additional symptoms may include poor vision, cognitive (thinking) difficulties and depression. (www.aapmr.org)

We will provide our seniors with the necessary physical, occupational and speech therapies while at the center as an integrated service incorporated within their care plan goals.  All therapies require PCP approval.

Care Coordination

Care coordination is the deliberate organization of patient care activities between two or more participants (including the patient) involved in a patient’s care to facilitate the appropriate delivery of health care services. (www.ahrq.gov)

Our staff will perform daily assessments to assure the goals of each care plan are on target to meet. 

Care Coordination

Memory Care

There is an array of memory care programs developed for seniors either experiencing new onset or chronic memory loss.  It promotes intellectual, physical, and social stimulation for persons of diverse backgrounds and at all stages of dementia. (www.alz.org)

  • Art Making

Art-making provides a means of self-expression. Participants will join in individual or group projects that are designed to promote positive self-esteem. Emphasis is placed on the process of creating, and participants are encouraged to talk about what they are making. Participants have the opportunity to share their finished pieces with the group at the end of each session.

  • Music Making

Music-making is physically and emotionally stimulating and is a great way of reaching and encouraging group interaction. Some participants will prefer singing, while others may enjoy an opportunity to play music. In addition to listening to and playing music, participants are encouraged to share memories and stories associated with the program’s musical selections.

We will provide group art and music therapy for our seniors as a major part of their care plan for those that are currently or at risk for developing any form of dementia.

Nutritional Care

The Administration on Aging’s (AoA) Elderly Nutrition Program support nutritional services to older people throughout the country. The Elderly Nutrition Program, authorized under Title III, is intended to improve the dietary intakes of participants. The legislative intent is to make community-based services available to older adults who may be at risk of losing their independence. The Elderly Nutrition Program provides for congregate meals in group settings, such as senior centers. (www.aoa.gov)

We will provide our seniors with an appropriate nutritional plan while considering any current or at-risk disease processes.

Referrals

Seniors are especially vulnerable to discriminatory housing practices based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, handicap (disability), or other protected classes. (http://www.jmls.edu/clinics/fairhousing/pdf/seniors-english.pdf)

We will make referrals to organizations that specialize in supporting our seniors through unfair housing practices.

Illinois Department of Human Rights

The Illinois Department of Human Rights takes and investigates charges of discrimination involving real estate transactions (rentals, sales, and other transactions) involving residential and commercial real property. (www.illinois.gov/dhr)

We will assess the current and potential risks of housing disparities of each of our seniors in an attempt to prevent health and physical risks.

Home Health Referrals

Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF).

The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury. Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible. (www.medicare.gov)

We will collaborate with our senior’s PCPs to assure they have received the appropriate home health care referrals.

Transportation

We will provide our seniors with transportation to and from the center each day they are assigned to attend the center.

Social Services

The Illinois Department of Aging provides senior social services through a Senior Help Line.  These services range from Care Coordination to Adult Protective services.  (www.illinois.gov/aging)
