What is Adult Daycare?
Adult Daycare centers can be a key provider of long-term care services. They provide a range of activities, health monitoring, socialization, and assistance with daily activities which allows individuals to continue to live in their homes and receive needed care in a supportive, professionally staffed, community-based setting.
What is Fall Prevention?
One in three senior citizens falls each year. Seniors who experience a fall often limit activities due to fear of falling again. Limiting activity puts the person at risk for further falls due to deconditioning, loss of confidence, and loss of muscle strength creating a vicious cycle.
A fall prevention center can provide fall risk assessments, bone densitometer scans, and classes, activities, and programs to reduce the risk of falls.
Who is eligible?
Medicaid, Medicare, Veterans, and private pay participants age 18 and older are eligible.
How can a person enroll?
Before the Center opens, a Preliminary Enrollment Form can be completed and mailed to P.O. Box 877, Pulaski, VA 24301. This will let us know you are interested and you will be given priority enrollment once the Center is ready for participants.
When will the Center be open?
A new building for the Center is under construction at 211 Fifth Street, Dublin, VA 24084. It is scheduled to open during late summer of 2016.
Why Pulaski County?
Currently no adult day service or fall prevention center exists in Pulaski County. Over one-third of the County’s residents are aged 55 years and older. Most caregivers are family members who are also employed outside the home and they need daytime services within a short driving distance from home and work. The building is in the geographical center of Pulaski County, close to Interstate 81, and affords easy access for caregivers who drop off and pick up participants.
