East Bay Adult Day Care

About East Bay Adult Day Care

East Bay Adult Day Care is an important service that is provided to local seniors and caregivers. Many caregivers sacrifice their social lives, careers, and well-being to care for their loved ones as they age. Adult day care gives them a safe place to leave their family member knowing that they are in competent and caring hands. This service can allow caregivers to work a job, tend to their own respite needs, or even just run errands for the day. With adult day care services, caregivers get the time off that they need during the day.

There are a couple of different kinds of adult day care service programs that are generally available. One type of program focuses on providing skilled nursing care and specialized medical treatments like memory or stroke care for seniors. The other type of program ensures that more active seniors are able to socialize and offers a number of different activities and outings while providing any general assistance that their charges require to participate. The type of adult day care program that you choose will largely depend on the individual needs of the senior.
