Caring for an older adult, particularly one who is experiencing signs of dementia, is an exhausting job. FCS Medical Adult Day Care offers caregivers crucial relief from around-the-clock care. Our program couples expert medical oversight with carefully designed programming geared toward keeping elders — who do not require nursing home care but are too vulnerable for senior centers — cognitively stimulated as well as physically and socially active. FCS Medical Adult Day Care also:
- Enables clients to live and function in their community with optimal independence
- Prevents premature or inappropriate institutionalization
- Helps participants maintain their capacity for self-care
- Includes meals, door-to-door transportation, and medication administration
Medically Focused Care
FCS has developed a medical oversight program that allows us to collaborate with care providers and offers our clients with the individualized care and attention they need to thrive. Dedicated registered nurses provide medical oversight and support for individuals who may be experiencing physical and/or cognitive changes.
Our staff is experienced in providing a high level of care for clients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. We provide a safe, secure environment with the appropriate level of stimulation for each of our clients and allow each individual to maintain their dignity.
Our clients benefit from the socialization and enjoyment that stems from a variety of engaging activities in our stimulating and structured environment. Daily activities, which include arts and music, light exercise routines, and spirited trivia games, are aimed at keeping clients active through body and mind.
