The programs and services provided by Almost Home offer a solution that can postpone, as long as possible, the placing of a loved one into an institution such as an assisted living facility or nursing home. Almost no one wants to give up living in their own home. Some do not want “strangers” in their house. Ours is a cost effective solution that allows your loved one to stay in their own home and in their own community.
Adult Day is a wonderful alternative for caregiving when you are not ready to put your mom or dad in a nursing home or assisted living. Instead, your parent can interact with people their age in an environment that promotes an active lifestyle. Activity staff at Adult Day are trained in therapeutic recreation and their job is to keep your loved ones active and engaged.
Adult Day is also a good option when you need some extra help providing care to a loved one but cannot afford assisted living or a nursing home. According to the Market Survey of Long-Term Care Costs, the annual costs of Adult Day Services are far less than Assisted Living, Home Care or Nursing Homes in 2012.
