There are many men and women throughout Rockland County who do not need or wish to live in an institution. However, by living at home, their medical and rehabilitation needs are not being met. As a result, we pioneered this medically-oriented daycare program.
Our Adult Day Healthcare program runs Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 3 PM. We utilize a skilled nursing and rehabilitation daycare approach, enabling participants to live at home. Essential medical, rehabilitation and other services restore and/or maintain a person at their maximum level of function for optimum quality of life.
Those accepted into the Adult Day Healthcare program have the opportunity to participate in an individual program which includes the following services:
- Medical, functional, nursing and psychosocial evaluations
- Close participation with personal physicians
- Occupational, physical and speech therapy
- Nursing and dietary counseling
All participants and their families have access to social services, including case work, group work services and referrals to other resources if necessary. The center also provides a recreational program geared to meet the needs of the participants.
Participants are evaluated to identify medical, functional and psychosocial levels and needs. Based on the results of these evaluations, an individual care plan is drawn up. Family members and the participant are part of the care plan process. As individual needs change, the care plan is evaluated to assess whether it should be altered. We work closely with personal physicians. As needed, we arrange for dental services, podiatry, laboratory and nutrition counseling. In addition, should the needs of the participant change, we will provide the essential help through expanded assistance.
Free transportation is provided from home to the center and back.
Fees depend upon the number of days of participation and are charged on a sliding scale. In addition, Medicaid covers the cost. This will be discussed and explained at your initial meeting.
