While having an older adult live at home can be wonderful and rewarding for both of you, even the most dedicated caregiver can use a break every once in a while. And, even if you have the assistance of a home health aide, mobility and health issues can limit your loved one’s activity level and ability to get out and interact with others. That’s why we created St. John’s Senior Day Program.
Each day at the Skalny Day Break, clients join us for an enjoyable day of activities and companionship, returning to their families in the evening. Day Break adult day services offer a safe, nurturing environment supervised by professional, caring staff. Individual care plans are developed to promote independence and choice and to help your loved one embrace living to the fullest extent possible.
Participants in our senior day program experience a stimulating social environment with a variety of daily activities that may include:
- Arts and crafts
- Exercise sessions and therapeutic walks
- Games, trivia contests, and bingo
- Field trips
- Music, movies, and live entertainment
Beyond social and recreational activities, our senior day program offer a wide range of services, including:
- Health supervision
- Nutrition assistance
- Rehabilitation therapies
- Access to the many services of St. John’s Home
- Social work services for participants and families
- Transportation coordination
The staff is excellent. They keep everyone active. Great programs and activities. Excellent care and compassionate hearts.
A Lunchtime That Is About More Than Food
Lunch is often the highlight of a participant’s day. Prepared in our on-site kitchen and served hot, fresh, and homestyle, lunch is another opportunity for seniors to socialize and build community. Meals can be customized to meet dietary needs and our adult day services also include a choice of beverage in the morning and a light snack in the afternoon.
Here To Help With Your Adult Day Care Planning
If you have started to look for adult day services to match your needs or the needs of a relative or friend, we can help coordinate tours, a home visit, and the admissions process, all in consultation with a referral agent, your family, and your loved one’s physician.
It’s all part of a medical model adult day program located at St. John’s Home in Rochester, NY, open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
