Adult Day Health

Michael is a developmentally delayed young adult living with his family. Michael has been a member of the Winder Adult Day Center for several years, receiving our services since his high school graduation. Over the last year, Michael has worked with nursing and activity staff to make improvements in his life and the lives of his fellow members.

Michael has been instrumental in the launch of our member’s site council, a monthly meeting where members have the opportunity to provide program feedback and suggestions in a structured setting. Michael has advocated for our members to attend these meetings and bring feedback on activities offered, meals, and general quality of care. This has led to more consistent feedback and increased opportunities for client choice. Further, it has contributed to Michael’s sense of self-actualization and purpose. Adult Day Health is a place Michael knows he can make a difference, and he sees himself as a valued member.

This sense of purpose has led to increase attendance, increased enjoyment, which impact his health status. This has encouraged Michael to take more ownership of his health status, and his blood sugars have also largely stabilized over the past several months, with Adult Day Health nurses providing regular education and guidance on his blood sugar.

Adult Day Health is a place where Michael knows he makes a difference, and this sense of belonging has had major impacts in both his physical, emotional, and social well being.
