LA CASA ADULT DAY HEALTH CENTER, INC
Adult Day Health Center, Inc.
Opened October 1, 2013
The need for Adult Day Health Center was recognized for the community where seniors and other individuals can benefit from a nurturing environment with social stimulation which can reduce the symptoms and progression of mental illness.
Once prospective participants fill out the initial paperwork, we sit with them and tailor a program based on their need and preference. Our Inter-Disciplinary Team makes an assessment and gives its recommendations for what would maximize those needs. The interdisciplinary team will address the participants’ family’s needs, to provide respite to family and caregivers. It is important that the participants not only engage in the many activities the center offers, but that they also be given help in coordinating with their family and spouse. La Casa's social workers and psychologists will consistently bridge the needs of the families in a way that compliments the needs of the participants. An explicit goal of the center is to liaison with the families and the community to maximize benefit and impact.
