Senior day care provides a break to the caregiver or family while also providing health services, therapeutic services, and social activities for the individual.
The family member can spend the day participating in activities which stimulate them physically and mentally. It also offers the individual the opportunity for social interaction. Senior day care can benefit both the carer and individual offering a welcome change of routine.
Although caring for a loved one is an important responsibility to take on, you should never feel that it has to consume your whole life, or feel guilty for taking time out. Your health and well being, as a carer, is equally as important.
