About the Adult Day Center

In Spring 2021, Agrace will offer a new adult day care service for people who need help caring for an elderly loved one. The Agrace Adult Day Center will provide drop-in senior care on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. This freestanding center is centrally located at 1702 W. Beltline Highway in Madison, with easy access from the Beltline.

The Center is open for all seniors that are in need of socialization and assistance with daily efforts. We will also engage seniors in activities that can help slow the progression of dementia and reduce cognitive decline. This compassionate, direct care gives a much-needed break to family caregivers. So, even when you cannot be home with them, your loved one can still enjoy:

  • companionship,
  • mentally stimulating activities,
  • physical activities and
  • nutritious meals.

Sample Weekly Schedule at the Agrace Adult Day Center

Designated staff are trained to administer participants’ medications from the written order of the participant’s Primary Care Provider. All medication administration is documented for family members’ reference.

 

Who can participate?

The Agrace Adult Day Center is a place for any elderly person looking for a social outlet and programming with peers. Participants may have cognitive decline, like memory loss or more frequent confusion, and need extra support and attention while their caregiver or family member cannot be home with them.

Your loved one does not need to be a hospice care patient or have any serious illness to receive care at the Center. It’s a safe, structured, compassionate space where Agrace’s staff will support the mental, emotional and physical needs of seniors and people with memory loss.

 

Who will be providing care?

Adult Day Manager, Kewana Jamison, RN will oversee care at the Center

Care at the Center will be overseen by a registered nurse (RN) manager and dementia specialist. The nurse will ensure each client’s daily medication needs are met.

The staff will also include a dementia certified nursing assistant, trained caregivers, volunteers, and a meal preparation chef from the Agrace kitchen. Clients will receive nutritious meals, with caregivers providing meal set-up, feeding assistance and activities that meet each person’s unique cognitive and emotional needs.

As positions become available, jobs will be posted on agrace.org/careers.

Volunteer opportunities will be available at the Center. Click for more information about becoming a volunteer today.

“We see this growing population of seniors who want independence and would like to stay in their homes, but oftentimes they need more socialization so they’re not in isolation. ”

— Marcia Whittington, Chief Development Officer

“In addition to serving seniors who live alone and want support from others throughout the day, the Center is a welcome option for families that need either a regular or an occasional respite from caregiving. We will engage seniors in activities that can help slow the progression of dementia and reduce cognitive decline.”

— Kewana Jamison, RN

 

What does it cost?

Most adult day services in Wisconsin are private pay, meaning they are not paid by insurance or other sources. The $77 fee includes a day of activities, medication management by an RN, two meals and snacks.

You may find alternative payment options through Family Care, the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Alliance, Area Agency on Aging of Dane County or your loved one’s VA benefit.
