“I love Christian Health Care Adult Day Services!” says client Josephine White of Wayne. “I love the friendly people. The staff makes me feel comfortable. They keep us busy with fun activities. I feel better, and my mind is better, too.”
Mrs. White’s physicians have noted a 25-percent improvement in her physical and mental capabilities since she joined the program.
“Christian Health Care Adult Day Services is outstanding,” said Alice Van Gieson, Mrs. White’s daughter. “The program has improved my mom’s quality of life. We are very grateful that she is a part of the program.”
Mrs. White and her family learned about Christian Health Care Adult Day Services while she was a patient in Christian Health Care Center’s short-term rehab program, The David F. Bolger Post-acute Care Unit. The Social Services staff recommended the adult-day program in Wayne for its medical and social benefits. Some seniors are hesitant about joining an adult-day program, but Mrs. White was quite enthusiastic.
“She’s a very social person and she wanted to go,” said Mrs. Van Gieson. “At first she attended three days a week. Now she is there five. When she can’t go because of bad weather or she’s not feeling well, she misses it terribly.”
