The day begins with anticipation for participants of The Susan J. Rheem Adult Day Center. There is a reason to get up, get dressed and look sharp: they are going to the Center! The SJRC provides a good day for each person coming through its doors. A day filled with seeing others, engaging in fun activities, enjoying music, and eating a delicious breakfast, lunch, and snack.
Many family members want to care for their loved ones at home for a long as possible. The SJRC is one way to help with this as it provides a loving and lively environment for older adults, including those living with memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, or other dementia. It also provides the family caregivers time to work or have much-needed respite from the demands of caregiving. They enjoy peace of mind knowing that their parent or spouse is being taken care of by a team of exceptional caregivers including an on-site nurse, activities staff, certified van drivers, and chef & kitchen staff.
