Alzheimer's Day Care
Since 1987, Jan Werner Adult Day Care has been addressing the unique challenges of participant’s and their families who face Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementia type disorders. Our memory care unit provides skilled specialists trained in the care and nurturing of those who suffer with dementia. Our secure and stimulating environment insures that each participant is treated as an individual with a customized schedule to meet their needs and give respite for the day to their family members.
Perhaps nothing is more satisfying than enjoying a well prepared, nutritious meal with friends. Every weekday, our participants receive a “restaurant-style”, hot nutritious meal served from our kitchen. Special diet considerations are included. Participants don’t stand in line but are served to make them feel more comfortable and encourage socialization. Morning and afternoon snacks are also provided and dietary counseling is available.
Sometimes life hits hard. Participants recovering from the debilitating effects of disease such as stroke, diabetes, and arthritis and who have physician ordered physical therapy, can receive treatment at Jan Werner. Physical therapy and Occupational therapy, provided by licensed therapists, and therapy assistants is available. Restorative care is an integral component of Adult Day Care Services.
Jan Werner Adult Day Care offers a variety of Medical Services for our clients. Physicians who are Board Certified oversee the Windy Nicklaus Clinic, an “in-house” clinic that serves participants. We also offer “The Basics”, a comprehensive healthcare program for Medicare and Medicaid patients (PACE). Staff nurses, skilled in Geriatric Care, assist participants with their prescribed medications and personal care. Each participant’s health is constantly evaluated and observed.
We agree with Norman Vincent Peale who said, “Live your life and forget your age!” That’s why you’ll find Jan Werner Adult Day Care filled with the joy of an upbeat, positive and active environment. Dancing, music therapy, arts and crafts, endurance exercises, and beach ball drumming are among the many opportunities for keeping active and experiencing just plain fun! Friendships are forged with other participants and with our skilled and motivated staff who love their work and the people they serve.
PACE participants may be fully and personally liable for the costs of unauthorized or out-of-PACE program agreement services.
