Meet Josephine. She joined Nevada Adult Day Healthcare Centers after a stroke. This is her story.
“In 2005, I had a stroke that left me paralyzed. When I came home from the hospital, I got very depressed. My daughter said, ‘We’ve got to find you something to do.’ We began to check out adult daycares. And most of them, people were sitting around in their wheelchair sleeping.” Her daughter joked that if she was going to sleep all day, she could stay at home to do so.
Then they discovered the bustling world of Nevada Adult Day Healthcare Centers.
“When we came here and there was music and there was people dancing and games and all kinds of fun stuff going on, we decided this was the place for me. I don’t like sitting around the house being depressed and watching daytime TV,” she says. “I have friends, we play games, we have different events going on… We always have little celebrations for birthdays, anniversaries and holidays.” The many scheduled activities our senior day care programs offers keep everyone stimulated and active.
Seniors can look forward to many services, such as:
- Physical therapy
- Music Therapy
- Social and Recreational Activities (games, puzzles, dancing, etc)
- Hot meals for breakfast and lunch
- Transportation services to and from our adult day care centers
Amidst all that our senior day care center has to offer, Josephine reveals her favorite part of adult day care. “The best thing about this place is the people who work here. They treat everybody like part of their family. And if you have any kind of problem, you always have someone to talk to.”
If you or a loved one is seeking a place to spend the day without being home alone, discover the many activities and fun programs Nevada Adult Day Healthcare Centers has to offer. We look forward to meeting you!
