ADULT MEDICAL DAY CARE PROGRAM

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Adult Medical Day Care the right next move for my parent(s)? 

  • If your parent(s) is living at home but has some health concerns that make you, or him/her, worried to be on their own, HAFH could be a wonderful source of comfort for you and a great opportunity for him/her to be busy and social while their health is monitored.  

I have a special diet, can HAFH work with my diet requirements so I can enjoy            the 2 meals or do I need to bring food with me? 

  • Yes, we have a registered dietitian on-site who caters meals and snacks to our participants’ dietary needs and ethnic preferences.
     

My mom is interested but she prefers to sleep late, do you have afternoons available?

  • Yes - we have 2 sessions available to choose from.  Morning session run 8:30am - 1:30pm.  Afternoon session runs from 1:30pm - 6:30pm.   

​​

Do I need to attend every day? 

  • While we encourage and feel participants will get the most benefit from attending every day, we understand everyone has different individual needs and lives.  To that end, HAFH allows participants to attend 1-5 days a week.  And they have the chance to choose and change between morning and afternoon shifts.
