Finding the right solution for your own or your loved one’s elder care needs is important. You want just the right mix of services and support to preserve independence, maintain safety and enhance quality of life. Samaritan offers two services for our local seniors to keep them engaged and keep their independence with Adult Day Health Care.
At the Samaritan Keep Home we provide both a Medical Model and Social Model of Adult Day Health Care. Both are distinct programs that offer different care and are covered by insurances differently.
Adult Day Health Care - Social Model
Samaritan’s new Social Adult Day Care program is a social and recreational program for seniors to assist in maintaining independence. In keeping with its commitment to high quality care and services for seniors in the community, Samaritan is pleased to announce this new program, which:
- Improves an adult’s independence in an effort to maintain living in his/her own home
- Provides opportunities to socialize, develop friendships and receive peer support
- Maintains an adult’s present level of function, and prevents or delays further physical or mental deterioration
- Helps eliminate loneliness
- Provides respite for families and caregivers
