Welcome back to our blog page here at Rockport Senior Living! Since our very beginnings, we’ve been able to maintain the same values with which we were founded; our desire is to be a valuable home away from home for elderly senior citizens in Rocky River. No matter what kind of elder care you’re needing, we’d love to be the ones to provide the right facility and community for your loved one. Whether you are interested in learning more about our independent living availability, assisted living suites, respite care, memory care, or elder day care, contact us today.
The transition from a working adult to a retired senior to an elderly person can be a tough few years or decades for everyone involved. As their children and grandchildren, it’s hard for us to watch our once strong loved ones suddenly become unable to do the same things they always found so easy. And for your aging loved ones, we understand that it’s never easy to watch themselves slow down and see their mobility or memory start to wain. What is an elderly person to do their days when they’re no longer in the working world, are unable to drive themselves, and are unable to be left alone for any significant amount of time?
Why Elder Daycare?
Elder daycare at Rockport Senior Living might be the perfect option for your aging parent. If your elderly loved one lives with you and you have things pretty well covered when you’re not at work, but you’re needing help during the day, we’re a great solution. Your loved one can participate in exercise programs, social activities, games, arts and crafts, a beauty salon, and so much more! In today’s blog, we’re going to take a closer look at some of the best that Rockport’s elder daycare has to offer!
When you’re needing to allow your elderly loved one to participate in some daily activities at our Rocky River facility, sometimes, your biggest obstacle might be actually getting them to us. With our pick-up and drop-off services, we provide ease and convenience to your daily life so that you can focus on getting to work on time.
Assistance With Personal Care
If your loved one is involved in our elder day care program here at Rockport, you can expect that they’ll receive the right kind of care they need. If your aging parent is in need of assistance with personal care or daily hygiene, we are more than equipped to step in and help out.
Social Activities and Games
As you know, your aging senior needs ways to stay busy just like anyone else. Our Rockport elder daycare participants are given the opportunity to take part in daily activities such as arts and crafts, games, puzzles, entertainment, and so many other social activities. There is never a shortage of fun things to do when you’re a part of our elderly day program.
Lunch and Snacks
Knowing that your loved one will be fed and taken care of can work wonders to give you some added peace-of-mind. With our Rockport senior daycare program, we provide well-balanced, nutritious, and great-tasting meals to our participants every single day. We offer a variety of foods and we’re very cautious of food allergies and foods that certain individuals are supposed to avoid.
Safe, Secure Environment
One of the things that many people ask us is if our facility is secure and if our daycare program provides a level of safety and security to our participants. The answer to this question is: absolutely! As one of our chief concerns, the safety of our residents and daycare participants is always something that we’ll prioritize. You can rest assured that we can be trusted with your aging loved one!
Arts and Crafts
Studies have shown that certain arts and crafts activities can be hugely successful in keeping the minds of elderly people engaged and functioning normally. Activities like drawing, knitting, or making other crafts can make a remarkable difference in not only your loved one’s enjoyment of our day program but also in their continued alertness and mental clarity.
As important as brain work is to keep your elderly parent thinking and reasoning like they used to, physical exercise can also be extremely beneficial to the health and well-being of your aging loved one. At our elderly daycare program here at Rockport Senior Living, we value the concept of staying active and that physical activity can sometimes improve the overall health of an elderly person. We make sure that exercise opportunities are available to your loved one.
Sometimes, it’s the little things that help us feel normal. For many of our guests and daycare participants, our on-site beauty salon means that they can enjoy an hour or two of being pampered by our amazing stylists. Consider signing your aging loved one up for our daycare program today!
