Health Care and Medication Monitoring by a Registered Nurse.
Our Health Care Coordinator (HCC) is a nurse who is available full time to assess and monitor participants throughout the day and provide medication administration. The HCC is also available as a family resource to help families identify other health care needs that may be needed for their loved one while attending our program.
A variety of enriching and stimulating activities throughout the day with focus on cognitive, physical and social aspects.
Therapeutic activities with focus on social, physical, and cognitive abilities are a core component of our program. Our Program Director and other staff work with participants and their families to identify activities based on the interests, needs, and abilities of each participant, emphasizing his/her strengths and abilities rather than impairments.
Participants will be encouraged to take part in activities, but may choose not to do so or may choose another activity.
Participants can enjoy an array of activities through the hard work and dedication of our Program Director who works diligently with volunteers in the community to assure that each day is filled with enriching activities for everyone.
From time to time, a participant may be in need of therapy, such as, physical, occupational, or speech. The center is equipped with a room designated for therapy, should this need arise. A licensed therapist may be obtained through an order from the participant's physician and by the choice of the participant. Therapists may be arranged through a local agency.
Increased socialization and maintained independence.
Studies show that socialization can slow down memory loss and help prevent depression.
Breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.
Participants can enjoy a nutritional breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack during their stay at the center. Participants may also enjoy assisting staff in our large home-like kitchen with the preparation of our breakfast and afternoon snack. Our lunch is catered by Papaw's BBQ in North Wilkesboro, and participants are served a nutritious meal with the taste of home touches.
Our menus for breakfast, lunch, and snacks are developed and approved by a Registered Dietician. A Registered Dietician is also available for consultation and ongoing staff training. The Center complies with the North Carolina Adult Day Care Standard in reference to nutritious meals. Special diets are available, if ordered by the participant's physician.
