Second Family Home Care has enjoyed building relationships with many different professionals and organizations within the senior living and healthcare industry. In particular we have become very engaged with the Alzheimer’s community- the Alzheimer’s Association, various physicians and specialists, church sponsored respite programs, caregiver support groups, and also adult day care for those with memory disorders. Adult day centers offer people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias the opportunity to be social and to participate in activities in a safe environment. One such place is Encore Memory Care Day Center in Plano.
There are many benefits from day centers like Encore.
If you are a full-time caregiver, adult day centers can provide a much needed break. While the person with Alzheimer’s is at the center, you’ll have time to rest, run errands or finish other tasks.
If you are a caregiver that works during the day, an adult day center can be very helpful as you try to balance a job with caregiving duties.
For people with Alzheimer’s and dementia, adult day centers provide a chance to be social and to participate in staffed activities such as music and exercise programs.
At Encore Memory Care Day Center, Director Laura Lester and her amazing staff have a wonderful program which includes many different services such as nutrition and dietary, health and wellness, family and spiritual support, personal care, transportation, and many activities throughout the day. They are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM-6:00 PM, and on Saturdays from 10:00 AM-5:00 PM.
For those families with loved ones who are guests at Encore, there may be times during the evening, on weekends, holidays, or other days when the center is not open. It is during those times when their family might benefit from additional care and assistance at home. There are also occasions when they simply need the extra help that a trained caregiver can provide. For these reasons Second Family Home Care is proud to be a resource for Encore Memory Care Day Center and have enjoyed many opportunities to participate and engage with their staff and guests.
Recently, Director of Marketing Tim Powell, brought donuts to the center one morning and visited with family caregivers as they dropped guests off for the day. He will also be returning soon for another Trivia and Tunes event, which was extremely well received the first time he presented it for them!
