May Institute’s Day Habilitation programs provide individualized support for adults of all ages, including those with complex medical needs. These programs combine medical monitoring, including nursing, physical, occupational, and speech therapies with daily living skills training and active community involvement. Adult day service providers who serve large groups of people have been affected significantly by restrictions on group size. Restrictions put into place on March 23, , through the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Order, remain in place until rescinded by the director of ODH or until the governor ends the state of emergency.
An adult day service might delay or prevent your loved one from needing to move to a long-term residential care facility. The service's programs can encourage your loved one to spend time with others, and supervised activities might improve daily living skills. Activities in Life Skills are often lengthier and include more attention to detail than Day Hab activities. However, Day Hab takes places every single day and focuses on applying simple methodology to teach basic, practical skills. We hold Special Needs Day habilitation classes from a.m. to p.m. Monday through Friday.
Licensed Day Activity and Health Services facilities provide daytime services, up to 10 hours per day, Monday through Friday, to people who live in the community. Services address physical, mental, medical and social needs. Adult day care is a great place for seniors to spend the daytime, especially if they have been isolated at home. There is a large range of both group and individual games and activities for seniors to stimulate them mentally and also to keep them physically active. It is also a fantastic way for seniors to maintain a healthy social life.
