Nursing Home Expanding to Offer Adult Day Care Service

In an effort to expand its services to the community, the Scotland County Care Center is now offering adult day care.

ďIt is just another tool for local residents to use in their efforts to care for their family membersí needs,Ē said SCCC Administrator Kathy Shoup.

Adult Day Care Services are available from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays. The service includes meals, snacks, a place to rest, and other personal care needs.

The service is available for qualified residents. Potential users of the service must initially go through the same admission criteria as full-time residents. This includes a physical, TB test, complete listing of medications with a doctorís order.

ďThe admissionís process takes a little bit of time, but once it is completed the process is relatively simple to use on a day-to-day basis.Ē

The SCCC Adult Day Care program can handle up to four residents in the facility at one time. It can be utilized full or part-time during the business hours.

ďWe really hope this will allow the in-home caregivers an option for a care provider when they must be away from their loved one,Ē Shoup said.

The administrator said the service can also benefit individuals that are caring for their parents or a spouse that is staying home to care for a husband or a wife. The regular daily hours would allow these individuals the option of returning to work while their loved one is enrolled in the adult day care.

Shoup pointed out that the program is not only beneficial to the caregiver but to the resident as well.

ďThe individuals that enter the program will have access to all of the normally scheduled care center activities and will benefit from the social interaction with the other residents,Ē Shoup said.

The service is not licensed by the state, meaning it is not reimbursable by Medicaid or Medicare.
