Adult Day Care Services
The Adult Daycare Program of the Raleigh County Commission on Aging is designed to assist seniors who are still fairly independent, but need assistance and/or supervision due to physical limitations or cognitive impairments, such as Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia.
The program not only provides a safe, friendly atmosphere for the seniors who attend the program, but it also offers their caregiver respite, or a break from providing care to their loved ones. This can allow caregivers to maintain other responsibilities, such as employments, family obligations, or to simply be able to take the time they may need for themselves.
The Adult Daycare Program is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM and is conveniently located inside the Raleigh County Senior Center in Beckley. The program offers
Morning and afternoon snacks
A hot lunch with 1/3 of the recommended daily allowance of nutritional value
Assistance based on individual care needs, such as feeding, toileting, and transferring
The program is ideal for seniors who live alone or are isolated. It not only provides the assistance needed for seniors to avoid unnecessary placement into skilled facility care, but also offers them the opportunity to form new relationships with others who share similar backgrounds and experiences.
Families can use the services of the program as much or as little as they need. Because caregivers are only billed for the services they use, there are no upfront costs or fees, and they do not have to pre-purchase any services they many not need or use.
Up to two hours $20
Two to four hours $30
Four to eight hours $50
Lunch, snacks, and activities are provided at no additional costs. Transportation in the greater Beckley area can also be scheduled at no additional cost.
For seniors who live in Raleigh County and have a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia, financial assistance is available through the Raleigh County Commission on Aging's FAIR and Respite programs.
