New Horizon's Adult Day Services
Are you, a friend, or a family member the primary caregiver for an aging adult? Caring for an older adult can be physically, emotionally and psychologically exhausting. Often, it may be difficult to assist an aging adult as a result of work commitments or the need to attend to personal matters. And, if an aging adult suffers from frequent falls, dementia or needs assistance with daily medical and dietary requirements, their safety may be at risk if left alone for any period of time.
Summa Health System offers a great opportunity for caregivers. The New Horizons Adult Day Services facility is a cost-effective senior care alternative specifically designed to give a hand to the primary caregiver. Located on the campus of Summa Western Reserve Hospital where emergency care is only minutes away, guests may stay one hour or all day, and attend as many days – Monday through Friday -- as needed each week.
The need for a primary caregiver to take time to re-energize is essential, but even more essential is knowing that an aging loved one is receiving the care they need to meet any daily medical and emotional needs. The program is staffed by Summa healthcare professionals who specialize in the needs of older adults and provide a safe, supportive environment.
