Adult day care is a planned programme of activities designed to promote well-being through social and health related services. Adult day care centres operate during daytime hours, Monday through Friday in a safe, supportive, cheerful environment.
For the participant adult day care benefits can be extensive:
Day-care provides older adults an opportunity to get out of the house and receive both mental and social stimulation. It gives care givers a much need break in which to attend to personal needs, or simply rest and relax. Day-care also provides an opportunity to access medical professionals.
Castleisland Day Care Centre works with TFI Local Link Kerry regarding our transport requirements.
