If your loved one has dementia or other challenges, The Caregiving Place Adult Day Care and Caregiver Resource Centers in Venice and Sarasota are safe, welcoming places to spend the day. Participants enjoy cozy fireplaces, comfy chairs, and a spacious outdoor park. Our families experience peace of mind knowing their loved one is receiving quality, compassionate care.
The Living Room
The combination of an adult day care program and staying at home can be a cost-effective and better way of caring for individuals with memory issues, as opposed to placement in a nursing home or memory care facility.
Since 1980, our fully licensed adult day care has provided a personal connection, where your loved one is more than their challenges. Our staff gets to know each person so they can serve their unique needs and make them feel comfortable with their surroundings. With a staffing ratio of 1:6, each participant is assured of personal attention throughout the day. The Living Room offers stimulating activities such as games, music, social engagement, holiday celebrations, discussions, brain fitness, art/pet therapy and more. It’s also a place that offers you, the caregiver, peace of mind and respite.
When is it Time to Consider Adult Day Care?
Without support, many people wait too long to seek help. Caregivers need a connection to timely information and assistance. Some questions to consider are:
- Does your family member or friend need help with daily tasks?
- Does he or she have much less contact with friends and little interest in activities?
- Are you frustrated, anxious, or confused about what to do?
Caregivers who live with and care for someone with dementia or other medical challenges can experience extraordinary amounts of stress. The Caregiving Place at Senior Friendship Centers offers support groups and classes, reference materials, a lending library, and access to state and national resources.
Caregiver support groups offer:
- Connection with other caregivers who can understand your situation and offer practical ideas
- A network of guidance, social and emotional support
- An opportunity to develop new friendships
A caregiver support group offers true healing for individuals who are making enormous sacrifices to care for a loved one at home. With your family member in good care and support from your peers, you can finally experience a sense of relief and freedom.
If your parent, spouse or loved one has a dementia-related disease or medical challenges and you’re wondering about the next step, our licensed Adult Day Care is a cost-effective alternative to a residential facility or expensive home health care. Benefits for Adult Day Care recipients include decreased socia isolation, increased strength and endurance, sharpened cognitive skills, reduced frustration, and elevated emotional well-being. At The Caregiving Place, we help you decide the best plan for you and your family.
