Room to Play: The Top 4 Benefits of Adult Day Programs


At Ebenezer, we understand that senior care comes in many different forms. For some seniors, adult day programs are a wonderful care option. But what is an adult day program, and what makes it so great? Adult day programs offer personalized care for older adults who live at home or with family, but want to stay active and enjoy the company of others. Not only are these programs a lot of fun for participants, but they also provide a range of additional benefits for participants. Keep reading to learn more about the top four benefits of adult day programs.

Social Time for Participants

Adult day programs offer a great opportunity for older adults who live at home or with family to socialize, expand their network of friends, and stay engaged and connected. Everyone, regardless of age, benefits from a thriving, active social life. Adult day programs not only provide a venue for socialization, but many also integrate activities and entertainment into their daily lineup. Activities vary, but most programs include fun games and exercises meant to keep the mind and body sharp – think Sudoku, crossword puzzles, board games and strength/balance movement. Not only do these activities help exercise the mind and body, but they can also encourage more social interaction.

A Break for Caregivers

Even the most dedicated and loving caregivers need a break every once in a while. Adult day programs provide the perfect opportunity for a few hours of well-earned, caregiver rest. These programs are also a great option for caregivers who need some extra help covering a full day of care, or for those who are looking to supplement the care they provide with structured activities and programs. Additionally, most adult day programs provide extra resources specifically for caregivers, and their structure creates a support network of professionals and friends. Adult day programs not only provide benefits for those being cared for, they are beneficial for caretakers as well. If you aren’t located in Minnesota and don’t have access to Ebenezer Adult Care, consider finding local support.

Personalized Care

The best adult day programs provide individualized care and support for seniors that need it. At Ebenezer, we’ve included options such as whirlpool baths, podiatrist services, and even beauty and barber services to help add an extra touch of care. And for those who need specialized programming due to memory or other cognitive losses, adult day programs can be tailored to help.

Extra Cash In the Bank

Home care services are expensive. Luckily, adult day programs can provide a more cost effective alternative. Not only are day programs usually less expensive than home care services, but adult day programs have also been found to reduce out of pocket health care costs, minimize the use of emergency departments, and even delay the need for full-time medical care. In every way, adult day programs help keep care costs down, and everyone’s spirits up.
