New Adult Day Services Center Comes To Cary/Apex
As the elderly population continues to increase markedly, Evergreen Adult Day Services provides a new adult day center to help seniors age in place
CARY, NC — June 12, 2017 — EvergreenAdult Day Services opened a 2,585 square-foot facility in Cary at 3434 Kildaire Farm Road, Suite 129, on May 10, 2017. Designed to be a cost effective alternative to home health services, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities, the Evergreeen facility offers a daytime program of nursing care, social services, nutritious meals and snacks, and social and therapeutic activities for elderly adults living in the southwestern Cary and Apex areas.
Operating Monday-Friday, 6:30am-6:00pm, the center is a combination Day Social and Day Health Facility. With registered nurses, nurses’ aids and healthcare coordinators on site, this state-of-the-art facility enables older adults with health issues and/or disabilities to live at home and remain independent while receiving health care and supervision during the day, and provides relief and respite for caregivers.
Services include providing supervision, monitoring and custodial care to older adults who have dementia, chronic illness, diminished physical mobility, and/or an inability to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) independently, such as bathing, dressing, eating, transferring, toileting, and continence. Full and part-time attendance is offered, with most attending 2-3 days per week for 6-8 hours per day.
LindaKim, Owner/Executive Director of Evergreen’s and a registered nurse, has a love for older adults and entered nursing specifically to care for this population. She decided to open an Adult Day Service after experiencing how helpful a day service was for her father-in-law suffering from Alzheimer’s dementia.
Explains Kim, “When my father-in-law was diagnosed, an adult day service provided a safe, stimulating, and homelike environment for him which allowed my mother-in-law to continue working part-time without worrying about her husband during those hours. And the added benefit is that he made new friends and loved attending.”
