Day services at the Cottage are an affordable way to keep your loved safe and well cared for during regular working hours. When compared to the cost of moving into a full-time care facility, it’s easy to see the sense in keeping your loved one at home at night and on weekends. Not to mention that staying connected to family, friends, church, and the community is one of the best ways to maintain a stable and healthy environment.
The Role of Senior Day Services
Senior Day Services assist adults to maintain their independence, improve their quality of life and prevent premature institutionalization, thereby allowing them to remain at home with family and friends. Brightwork Cottage provides a licensed program for adults who may have memory loss or confusion, a physical disability, the need for assistance with personal care, and those who need companionship while others are away.
The Benefits of Senior Day Services
Seniors attending Brightwork Cottage benefit from a safe and homelike environment where nutritious meals and snacks are served, medications are monitored, personal care is given, and the opportunity to socialize and build friendships is found. Family members or friends acting as caregivers find respite from constant care, and benefit from the opportunity to run errands, meet appointments, continue their careers or schooling, and to rest.
