Respite Care Services
Locust Grove Village provides the invaluable option of respite care for families needing temporary assistance with the care of a loved one who is unable to manage on their own. It may be a vacation, business trip, or just the need to “take a break” from the daily responsibilities of care giving. Whatever the reason, we are available to provide high quality care and services for seniors on a short term basis.
Adult Day Services
The Adult Day Services Program is an organized program for an individual whose physical, mental, and psycho-social needs can be met by intermittent nursing, psycho-social, and rehabilitative or restorative services.
Adult Day Services are not intended to substitute for the services of 24-hour nursing care nor to duplicate the functions of an adult social club or senior service center. Adult Day Services are planned and implemented as an integral, but distinct part in the continuum of supportive services that should be offered and provided in a coordinated effort within the community. Adult Day Services may not exceed 12 hours per day. Any time care is required to exceed 12 hours per day, the resident will be admitted to Respite Care.
The program hours will be from 7:00 A.M. – 7:00 P.M., five days a week. Special requests for other hours will be considered on an individual basis. The daily schedule is flexible and can be adjusted to accommodate the working schedule of families. A participant may designate particular days of the week to attend the program, if less than five, based on their needs.
The Adult Day Services Program will provide or coordinate the range of services identified and specified in the negotiated service agreement. The range of services may include:
- Daily meal service(s) based on the participant’s needs.
- Health care services based on an assessment by a licensed nurse.
- Social transportation.
- Planned group and individual activities meeting the needs and interests of the participants.
- Other services necessary to support the health and safety of the participant.
- Services will be coordinated and provided with the nursing home resident schedule. If unforeseen circumstances arise and services are unable to be provided, you will be notified and rescheduled.
