Recognizing that People Are Unique
Because people have different abilities and interests, each participant
is assessed by the Center Director, with the family, to identify
strengths, needs and preferences. Based on this comprehensive
assessment, an individualized plan of care is developed. The Director
and staff select and schedule activities and programs most appropriate
for the individual. Center staff continually adapts programming to meet
the participant's changing needs and interests.
The Independence Program is for adults with
physical difficulties such as stroke, Parkinson's disease and
multiple sclerosis. Activities are designed to strengthen
individual skills and maintain as much independence as possible.
The Memory Program is for individuals with
memory loss. Common diagnoses are Alzheimer's Disease and other
forms of dementia and brain injury. Emphasis is placed on
increasing participants' sense of accomplishments and
self-worth, while maintaining their safety.
Having special needs or requiring extra attention should not discourage
anyone from considering Adult Day Services.
Benefits to Caregivers and Families
Being a caregiver is a valuable and rewarding challenge and caregivers
make an important contribution in society. However, caring for a loved
one at home can be overwhelming and can result in increased stress and
isolation for both caregivers and their loved ones.
Main Line Adult Day Center allows caregivers to work outside the home,
pursue their own personal interests and hobbies, or simply get the rest
they need from 24-hour caregiving so they can maintain their health and
strength. Caregivers enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that their loved
ones are receiving the care they need in a safe and stimulating
In addition, Main Line Adult Day Center offers convenient locations and
hours of operation, coordination of other health and supportive care
services, support groups for caregivers, educational services, long-term
care counseling, and a professional staff.
An Affordable Option
Main Line Adult Day Center is a cost-effective alternative to assisted
living or nursing home placement. Center staff will work with families
and caregivers to customize the best payment option for their
situations. Some payment options include direct payment, long-term care
insurance, County Office of Aging, Veterans Administration and the
Office of Mental Retardation.
