Avenidas Encourages Discussing Elderly Care During the Holidays

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2014

The holiday season is here, and that means it’s time for many families to come together, especially those that live far away. Sometimes, holiday visits can be an eye-opener to changes in a loved one’s condition and health needs. Avenidas encourages family members to take the necessary steps to give loved ones the proper care and help that they need.

Seniors often downplay their challenges, so loved ones may not be aware of the challenges they are facing until they see them in person. Many older adults fear the loss of their independence and worry about becoming a burden on their families. It’s important to be open with loved ones about the care they need and decide on a solution that works best for everyone.

The Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center offers affordable daytime care for aging parents, spouses and loved ones. It is both an adult day care and an adult day health center. Loved ones enrolled in the adult day care program enjoy transportation, exercise, activities and socializing. If more help is needed, the adult day health program provides additional support such as speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy.

The facility offers older adults the safe and comfortable environment that they need, with proper supervision and stimulating activities. Avenidas supports participants with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, stroke and other chronic conditions.

This holiday season, everyone should make sure their loved ones are getting the care they need to live safely and comfortably. For more information about Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center, visit http://www.avenidas.org/services/senior-day-health-center.
