Adult Day Care Client Options

Older persons with disabilities—physical, develop- mental and cognitive—are needing and using home and community-based services in greater numbers.
This is partly because advances in medical treat- ment have enabled individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities to live much longer than ever before possible. Some ADS providers have responded to this unmet need by offering special- ized programming for older adults with mental retardation or developmental disabilities (MR/DD).
Recent federal and state initiatives have also increased the number of younger persons with dis- abilities receiving health and supportive services in their homes and communities. These include per- sons with physical, developmental, cognitive and psychiatric disabilities. Many of these individuals may be best served by a combination of adutl day and HCBS programs, while some may need very specialized services and supports. Attention should be given particularly to staffing and facility set-up when multiple target populations are mixed, such as older adults and younger adults with develop- mental or intellectual disabilities.

5 Reasons a Residential Care Home is Good for Your Parents

Residential Care homes are just that, residential homes. They are regular houses, in regular neighborhoods.  From the outside looking in you would never know that the home may be licensed by the state, exactly the same as a large assisted living facility seen in commercial areas.   Below are 5 reasons that residential care homes are a great alternative to a larger facility for your elderly loved one:
1. The homestyle environment gives seniors the opportunity to feel as they are still a part of a “family”.
2. The low resident to staff ratio allows caregivers to provide each senior with the one on one attention they deserve. Residents tend to have less incidents & falls because of the constant oversight by staff.
3. Most residential care homes offer “all inclusive” rates allowing the families & resident peace of mind & security when planning their financial future. The rate commonly includes meals, snacks, activities & assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, toileting, urinary or bowel incontinence care.
4. For those suffering from Alzheimer's disease or other dementias, a small residential care facility can be an ideal setting.  Many licensed homes are Memory Care Certified!  Furthermore, memory care residents tend to feel more comfortable in a home-like environment versus a large facility.
5. Daily or weekly respite care is usually offered & is a great way to test out the scenario before committing to a move. Respite is also a great way for the current caregiver to take some much deserved personal time perhaps a night out or a weekend away. 
In a residential care setting, seniors still have the ability to carry on as normal a life as they wish or are able.  They can go shopping and have friends and family visit whenever they want.  If given the choice, most families will choose residential care over nursing home care for these reasons. When investigating permanent options for your aging loved one, remember, a nursing home is NOT the only option.
