Today an estimated 5.4 million people have Alzheimer’s including 130,000 in Virginia. Every 68 seconds someone develops Alzheimer’s disease.
Primeplus provides nurturing support to residents of South Hampton Roads ages 45 and above with special needs 5 days a week. Client diagnosis includes Alzheimer’s and related disorders, cardiovascular disease, severe depression and many others. The purpose of our Adult Day Service is to offer respite for caregivers, keep families in-tact and delay the need for home health care or long-term care. We provide caregivers’ piece of mind that their loved one will be well taken care of and their individual needs will be met.
In an effort to keep cost to a minimum and continue to provide the highest of quality care, we rely on select volunteers to assist with our Adult Day Service Program. Some of the activites volunteers assist with are:
- Reading to our participants.
- Anyone with musical ability to sing or play instruments for participants
- Playing games/cards.
- Talking and listening to participants.
- Helping with meals.
- Assistance with walking.
- Helping to keep participants active and engaged.
