On Saturday, September 15th, from 10 am to noon, SarahCare® Kingwood will celebrate National Adult Daycare Week with an open house showcasing the facilities. The highlight of the open house is the opportunity to participate in the Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT), which is a method that creates a sensory simulation of what a person with dementia experiences.
The VDT allows caregivers to more fully understand how their loved one interacts with and experiences the world. In addition to the VDT, visitors can tour the center, get more information on the programs SarahCare® offers and get resources for creating a more positive experience for their loved one.
SarahCare® offers a flexible program of adult day services that is more affordable and a welcome alternative to resident nursing homes or assisted living. Participants engage in a variety of activities in a social setting during the day while returning to their family home in the evening. Caregivers have the peace of mind that their loved ones are enjoying experiences in a safe environment assisted by medically trained staff.
Program participation ranges from full-time (Monday through Friday) to part-time basis. "We are an affordable option for those caring for their elderly parent or spouse who work during the day, but still want to keep their loved one in their home with them," explained Lisa Suarez, Executive Director and Owner of the Kingwood location. "Caregiving is a 24/7 job. Everyone needs a respite at times. We are here to allow the caregiver time to care for themselves."
SarahCare® was founded by Merle Griff in 1985 in response to the void in the health care and assistance industry to meet the needs of the elderly, their families, and caregivers. SarahCare® provides adult day care services for seniors in a safe and stimulating environment. SarahCare® Kingwood, located at 23972 Highway 59 N, opened in 2006 and has become a vital part of the Northeast Houston community. A second location is opening this fall at The Woodlands.
