Many families need assistance for elderly parents during the daylight hours….when the grown children are at work and there is no one to care for a parent who needs supervision. Here is where “Adult Day Care” facilities come into play.
Adult Day Care provides a safe and caring setting for adults. Programs are designed to cover the daily individual needs of each participant, including a variety of social and supportive services. Participants may be physically, mentally or functionally impaired, or they may simply need companionship or supervision during part of the day.
I found a great resource on the Internet listing the available facilities by locality including: Roanoke, Salem, Martinsville, Danville, Lynchburg, Clifton Forge, Covington, Blacksburg, Bedford, Wytheville and others.
