Home Health Care in Riverdale, NY
Make a Difference in the Life of Your Loved One – and Yours.
Are you worried about a senior who spends too much time home alone? Do you find that you’re preoccupied at work, or taking time off, to tend to their needs?
Wartburg’s Adult Day Care provides a safe, stimulating environment for seniors – with special supports for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia – and a much needed break for the caregivers who love them. Our programs are designed specifically to meet the needs of both reasonably healthy and medically frail seniors.
- Our Social Model is for adults who would benefit from an enriching program of recreational and social activities in a professionally supervised environment. Loved ones socialize with peers to connect both emotionally and spiritually, allowing them to escape loneliness and isolation. We offer a wide range of activities to help seniors in reasonably good health maintain their zest for living.
- Our Medical Model is for adults needing medical or health support services in addition to enriching social activities. Working with your family physician, we develop a personalized care plan for your loved one. A Registered Nurse supervises the program and provides comprehensive monitoring of health needs, such as diabetes and hypertension. A carefully planned program of therapies and activities helps maintain and improve each adult’s well-being. These includes Medicaid-eligible services such as physical, speech and occupational therapy as well as psychological, podiatry and pain management services. Participants also enjoy carefully selected recreational and social activities in a professionally supervised environment.
We Offer a Wealth of Enriching Activities and Added Peace of Mind
Whether your family chooses the social model – or finds the additional healthcare support of our medical model better meet your needs – you’ll have peace of mind knowing your loved one is a in a nurturing, caring environment they are sure to enjoy.
