Alzheimers & Adult Day Health Programs
Adult Day Health provides activities, nursing, occupational, speech and physical therapies and social services to help participants sustain their highest level of independence. This program is one of only two programs in San Mateo County to offer meaningful medical services for frail and/or disabled seniors, much more than just traditional day care. Our goal is simple, to avoid the need for a nursing home.
Individualized goals may include improving balance and physical strength and/or cognitive skills. Nurses monitor blood pressure and oversee participants’ medication needs. Social workers help connect participants with other community resources. They also lead support groups, provide counseling and facilitate family meetings.
Participating in the program helps reduce the isolation many older adults feel. People in the program report that being more active gives them a renewed sense of purpose.
Participants attend two to five days per week, depending on need. Help with grooming and personal care is provided and a hot lunch is served every day. Transportation is available.
