Senior Day Services: in the beginning
Back in 2007, an informal group of senior citizens recognized the growing need for a website that could serve as an informational resource for adult family members providing in-home care for aging loved ones.
Providing daily care for an elderly family member can exhaust even the strongest caregiver. Most often the job falls on an equally aging spouse, or an adult child.
That is when a respite is needed.
Our mission is to help in-home caregivers find local Senior Day Care Centers where their loved ones can safely spend a few hours a day with their peers.
Senior day care centers
This is why we decided to create our online guide to Senior Day Care facilities in the United States. We realize it will take a while for us to grow our listings to the point that all States and most Cities will be covered. If you would like to help, please use our online form to suggest Senior Day Care Centers for us to include in our guide.
We feature contact information and detailed descriptions of related services, and other important resources, currently available. Below is a summary of those services:
- Senior Day Care Centers – typically provide elderly afflicted with physical or cognitive disabilities an opportunity to socialize, engage in activities, play games, and receive assistance with personal grooming in a safe, friendly, supervised setting.
- Adult Day Care Centers – offer similar services for disabled adults of all ages.
- General Day Care Centers – offer similar services for disabled individuals of all ages.
- Caregiver Support Centers – where caregivers can find additional information, training, and support.
- Government Agencies – federal, state and local agencies offer information and support for elderly citizens with disabilities.
- Non-Profit Organizations – provide various kinds of assistance.
- Other Organizations – offer additional assistance to seniors.
Caregiver Support Centers are springing up around the country to serve an estimated 20 million or more men and women who are taking care of a disabled loved one in their home.
These Centers provide needed information and training. They also give participants an opportunity to join support groups where they can share their experiences with others in the same situation.
