Caregivers' Goals and Objectives
Aging Care Matters, LLC Adult Day Center assists individuals and their caregivers by:
Increasing Caregiver Employability. Able-bodied persons who are responsible for providing the care required by a dependent adult can seek and accept employment if provisions can be made for care during working hours.
Supporting Personal Self-sufficiency. We provide a means of overcoming social isolation and its motivational effects
We create contact among persons who are often socially isolated, aids in overcoming the loss of self-esteem and self-respect that comes with isolation and promotes maintenance of good physical and mental health.
We bring aging persons out of social isolation and help to promote a sense of self-worth and interest in daily life.
We reduce the burden of an overwhelmed caretaker. A caretaker who is or would be overwhelmed by the responsibility of providing full-time care of a dependent adult is often prone to frustration, aggression, or burn-out. Such aggression, in turn, is often directed at the dependent adult, or the burnt-out caretaker may be unable to provide the necessary care.
Allowing a dependent adult’s family to attain or maintain the goal of “Economic Self-Support”
Providing care for a dependent adult during working hours is often necessary for able- bodied members of that person’s family to become employable or to remain employable. The income gained from such employment may determine whether or not such a person’s family is able to afford to maintain him or her at home.
Providing services to persons whose needs are not actually sufficient to require institutionalization if there is a community-based care alternative.
The Center is open Monday through Friday 9 am to 4 pm.
Holidays the Center will be closed: New Year’s Day; Martin Luther King Jr. Day; Good Friday; Memorial Day; Independence Day; Labor Day; Thanksgiving Day; Thanksgiving Friday; Christmas Eve; Christmas Day; New Years Day
