Our new ADC - B's Adult Day Center - opened in October.
We run six hours of active programming, although our doors are open from 8am-5pm if caregivers/families need extra time. Some clients have the opportunity to come for a shorter period of time in the morning for social interaction before transferring to other programs like Industries where they work, and they also may return after they are off from those programs until their caregivers/families can pick them up and take them to the home of their choice; this works well for clients who may need "gap" supervision for safety.
Our Day Center programming includes daily exercise, arts/crafts, cooking/baking activities, music, games, puzzles, reading club, trivia, Veterans celebrations, movie theater, and outings - in addition to morning snack, afternoon snack, and a hot lunch cooked in our commercial kitchen.
Our participants get the honor in deciding what activities they would enjoy doing when they would like to do them and help our staff set schedules that better fit each of the participant's interests.
Additionally, we have Physical Therapy on-site up to 5 days a week (provided by Isanti physical therapy); this therapy group also oversees our exercise program and sees our participants as needed weekly for their physical therapy needs.
We have a podiatrist coming in from the cities every other month to do foot care, Medicare visits and assist in proper foot care.
We will be having a hair stylist come in monthly, as participants need the service.
We have a licensed Shower program and have two oversized walk/wheel in shower bays; many of our clients get showered during their time here, which reduces some of the family required cares when they return home. Clients may come in just for the showers; these are clients who may not have a shower that is accessible or safe for them at home.
We have a full-time nurse on staff to easily administer medications, help manage blood glucose checks, insulin injections and allow for help with wound care.
We would love to offer a tour to any families and participants.
Our working hours are 8a to 5p. Buses, vehicles, and family drop-offs happen from 8a to 11a. All participants are picked up between 3p and 5p
