Concerned about leaving a loved one alone, but not ready for nursing home care?
The Adult Day Center is a cost effective, community-based alternative for families needing health care monitoring, personal care, social, and recreational activities for their family member.
Often times, the children of older adults in our community live miles away from Mom and Dad. They come home for a holiday and notice Mom or Dad are having minor, but concerning problems. Maybe it is difficulty moving about or maybe troubling signs of forgetfulness.
Whatever the case may be, as caregivers to our parents, we want to be sure they are safe and secure when we're not around. We hear this story time and time again and as a result, have created a solution that brings comfort to the family, prevents pre-mature nursing home placement and provides excellent care to older adults through our Adult Day Center.
Adult Day Center participants can choose from a wide variety of extended services as well as how often they attend.
The Adult Day Center has been operating since 1978. Over the years we have found that the older adults who need help with self-care or require some supervision thrive in this program. The social interaction provides therapeutic benefits that are immeasurable.
This program also greatly benefits the caregivers of the older adults. Spouses, family members and friends who have been providing day-to-day care find the Adult Day Center allows them personal time to complete daily tasks, continue their work schedules, attend school or simply take a respite from care-giving.
Caregivers receive peace of mind knowing their loved one is being cared for in a safe, home-like and caring environment.
The Adult Day Center is a combined endeavor of Colonial Club Senior Activity Center, Dane County Department of Human Services, and United Way of Dane County.
Fees are determined by how often the participant attends, what other services they require and what programs they might qualify for. Scholarships are offered for low-income persons (proof of income is required).
Currently the program is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
