At The MENTOR Network, we believe that elders should get the most out of each day and have regular opportunities to socialize and pursue their interests. We also know that chronic illnesses, mobility challenges and other needs mean an elder may need support in order to be as safe and healthy as possible. Our partner MENTOR Adult Day Health operates unique day centers providing individualized health services and opportunities to make friends and participate in activities they enjoy. Our caring staff work with each elder to create an individualized Plan of Care that fits their needs and interests and helps them be as active as they would like to be. MENTOR Adult Day Health centers are a safe, cost-effective option for elders and help reduce the need for admission to nursing homes, hospital visits, and home-health aides.
In addition to our support staff, each center also has a nurse on site to provide caring support for any medical need, including medication management and daily care for illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and COPD.
Recreation and Social Activities
Elders may choose from a wide range of activities that reflect their interests and cultural heritage. Depending on each individual’s interests and needs, this may include:
- Art and music
- Exercise classes
- Holiday celebrations
- Community outings
- Computer learning
- Enrichment classes (English, health, etc.)
Daily Living Assistance
We offer support with daily living tasks such as personal care and mobility and help elders maintain independent living skills. We also provide transportation to and from the program, as well as to community activities.
Healthy Meals and Snacks
Staff provide nutritious meals and snacks tailored to each participant’s dietary needs, including those with diabetes and heart disease.
A Place to Belong
Our goal is to offer each person exciting new options from one day to the next, while recognizing the importance of familiarity and routine for some participants. And because of our individualized approach, we are able to create an atmosphere that is a community all its own…a place where elders can belong and look forward to attending each day.
