How to Help Your Loved One
At New Generations, our Adult Day Care is one of the best in the area. When elderly, ill, or disabled individuals enroll in our program, they can count on the care of our friendly, well-trained staff. Our attentiveness and strive to provide the best experience possible make Adult Day Care an easy choice for families, however, we know that there’s always a transition period between living at home to living elsewhere for the majority of the day.
When you mention Adult Day Care to your loved one, it’s not uncommon for them to be nervous, afraid, or simply reject the idea. We understand that the thought of living somewhere else when one is so used to the comfort of their home can be tough. That’s why it’s important to be positive. Highlight the beneficial aspects of the potential change.
For example: At New Generations, our licensed and registered nurses not only fulfill your loved one’s medical needs, but our staff members also plan days that are full of activities, from crafts to outdoor activities to performances. It’s our goal to make the individuals at our facility feel comfortable, important, and happy. We also provide exercise activities, snacks and lunches, and special outings.
When it comes to the suggestion of Adult Day Care, we recommend being open and honest with your loved one. A good relationship is built on honesty, and rather than lying about the reasons for your decision, it’s best to be up-front about why you feel Adult Day Care would be the best choice for your loved one.
If you’ve been caring for your loved one for an extended period of time, they may not like the idea of an Adult Day Care program instead of your care. At our South Carolina senior care company, we make sure that the families of loved ones are as involved as possible when it comes to their care. We’ll constantly stay in contact with you while your loved one is under our supervision, and we’ll work together to choose a program that will be best for them.
We know that this may be a difficult decision in your life, so give us a call. We can help you through it.
