Look to this day...

For yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is only a vision...

But today well-lived

Makes every yesterday a dream

of happiness and every tomorrow

a vision of hope.

Who Uses Adult Day Services?

Who Uses Adult Day Services?

-         A caregiver that needs to work and care for a disabled adult child at home.

-         A caregiver that has a middle age daughter with a brain tumor at home that is unable to be left     on her own.

-         A daughter caring for a mother with Alzheimer’s.

-         A son caring for his mother that is frail and needs assistance with her personal care needs.

-         A sister caring for a sibling that was disabled by a car accident. 

These are all real examples of caregiving situations that we have seen families deal with that have utilized the services we offer so that they are able to care for their family member at home.  

Most caregivers aren’t aware of the services we offer until they find themselves in a position of caregiving.  When Bon Homie first opened in November 1992 we were licensed to care for adults sixty years of age and older.  Families that cared for young adult children began knocking on our door looking for services.  In April 1993 we were licensed by the department of Public Welfare which allows us to service individuals 18 years of age to 59 year of age.  Today, 22 years later we provide two programs that allow us to service individuals 18 years of age and older, with a variety of disabilities, needs and functioning levels. 

According to the 2010 MetLife National Study of Adult Day Services Adult Day Services is a growing source of Long-Term Care.

Adult Day Services (ADS) Centers are a key provider of long-term care services in the United States. They provide a program of activities, health monitoring, socialization, and assistance with daily activities which allows individuals to continue to live in their homes and receive needed care in a supportive professionally staffed, community-based setting.

There are more than 4,600 adult day services centers across the U.S. — a 35% increase since 2002.                                                                                                                                                                                More than 260,000 participants and family caregivers are serviced — an increase of over 100,000, or 63%, since 2002.

MetLife also list the Key Findings of this 2010 study:                                                            https://www.metlife.com/mmi/research/adult-day-services.html#findings

  • ·         Almost 80% of centers have professional nursing staff and about 50% have a social worker   and physical, occupational, or speech therapy
  •           Direct care worker-to-participant ratio is 1:6
  • ·         Over 80% of participants attend full days and 46% attend five days per week
  • ·         Centers are serving populations with higher levels of physical disability and chronic disease
  • ·         ADS centers are leaders in providing care to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
  • ·         Approximately 90% provide cognitive stimulation programs

Most centers provide caregiver support including educational programs (70%) and caregiver support groups (58%)

I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Terrific blog!
