Let us accept the fact that not all seniors get giddy over the thought of day are centers. Some of them are pleased with it while there are also some who thinks that they are just left there by family members who wouldn’t want to invest time and effort to provide home assistance themselves.
Whether your parents or grandparents like or dislike the idea of being put in a day care center, they would all have expectations about it. Some make expectations and get excited about them. While there are some who makes wish lists, with hesitations at the back of their minds.
We share with you a few things that seniors really expect out of day care centers. Whether they expect these things to happen that’s why they are happy, or they expect these things not to happen that’s why they are reluctant, it is important for us to understand them so we can properly resolve them.
1. They get to have more company.
Senior expect more company in an adult day care center. The key for acceptance is to assure them that there will not just be more but better company. There will be caregivers, administrators, and co-adults that they will get to see and mingle with. The company of these people will be good for them to stay well, active, and, hopefully, happy.
2. They will be able to accomplish more things than when at home.
Since there will be caregivers around, they expect to be assisted in accomplishing things like feeding, medicating, and even in recreational activities. Though they expect support, they equally expect better independence in a center than at home where no one could respond in the event of an emergency.
3. They get to enjoy better food or their food better.
Better food means non-canned, pre-cooked meals. For some adults, they get by with a diet of baked beans and Spam, almost daily. So they look forward to better meals in the center. They also expect better dining time since they will be joined by other people as a contrast to eating alone at home.
4. The environment is happy and not boring.
Loneliness is a senior’s worst enemy. At least, in a center, they get to be entertained by other seniors or by caregivers. If not, they get to entertain themselves by engaging in activities that they cannot do when they are on their own. A day care center may not be as good as a house with family but at least it is not as boring as living alone.
