Adult Day Services

Needing A Break – Adult Day Services 

Rely on Edgewood to care for your loved ones while you receive a well-deserved break. Edgewood Adult Day Services give caregivers rest and rejuvenation from the demands of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory loss. Your loved one gets personalized care while you take care of errands, appointments, work or day trips. 

Adult Day Services include all services offered to our full-time residents, such as:
  • 24-hour staffing with nurse coverage 
  • Safe, homelike environment with secured doors and outdoor courtyard 
  • Care from staff members with specific training in Alzheimer’s and memory care 
  • Nutritious home-cooked meals and snacks 
  • Planned daily activities 
  • Assistance with grooming 
  • Medication administration under nurse supervision
When a loved one is initially diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of memory loss, especially in the early stages of the disease, the initial responsibilities of the family member who is the primary caregiver may seem manageable. Eventually, the progression of the disease makes this role an around-the-clock responsibility. Soon the sole caregiver becomes exhausted with the growing needs of their loved one. 

Care For Caregivers 

Adult Day & Short-term Stay Services is a term used by Edgewood to describe time taken by the caregiver for rest and rejuvenation from the demands of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of memory loss. Though caregivers often feel guilty leaving their loved one in the care of someone else, it is imperative for both parties. Caregivers who neglect their own physical and emotional health may be ill-equipped to meet the daily challenges of care giving. 

We offer adult day and short-term stay services so that your loved one gets personalized care while you take care of errands, appointments, your job or a vacation. Edgewood offers a variety of programs to help you for an hour, a full day or an extended time. 

You or your loved one will enjoy life fully, and when you need us we'll always be there. That's our promise to you.
