“No one could possibly imagine the positive impact the Adult Day Health Care Program has had on the quality of life for my mother…and me!"
Marvella Brown’s mother has dementia that requires medical and nursing monitoring as well as companionship and stimulation, if only to slow the progression of the disease. At CNR’s Adult Day Health Care Center’s Alzheimer’s and Dementia program, her mother gets that help in a nurturing and safe environment.
Beyond the peace of mind that the program provides Marvella when she is away from her mother -- at work or attending to any other of life’s daily demands -- is the bit of respite, the momentary breaks from the stress of being the caregiver to a loved one who is afflicted.
For Marvella, that respite makes all the difference.
“Thanks to CNR’s ADHC center and the program, I don’t have to race home from work to relieve the home aide and prepare dinner. My Mom gets a hot dinner at the center and then, around 8:00 p.m., the center’s van takes her home to me.
“It’s a win-win for both of us.”
