#1 Day Care for Bipolar Adults in South Carolina
Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, is a mental illness that causes extreme, often sudden shifts in energy, mood, and/or activity levels. It’s estimated that 4.4% of adults in the United States experience bipolar disorder at some point in their lives and 3.3 million individuals suffer from it every year. At New Generations, we are proud to be the number one day care for bipolar adults in South Carolina. We have two convenient locations in Florence and Marion, South Carolina.
This disorder usually begins in adolescence or early adulthood and unfortunately, it’s often not easily recognized. Because symptoms can vary in severity and from individual to individual, it is sometimes mistaken for other illnesses (such as substance abuse or trouble in school or the workplace.) If you or someone you love is struggling with bipolar disorder, contact the experts at New Generations today.
How New Generations Adult Day Care Can Help
At New Generations, we understand this disorder affects everyone differently, which is why we make sure the staff members who run our day care for bipolar adults receive training courses and have an in-depth knowledge about the illness. This lets them connect with and assist the individuals who attend Gary’s Gang, our special needs program, each and every day. Learn a little more about what our day care for bipolar adults offers:
