The Senior Adult Activities Center of Montgomery County (Montco SAAC) Adult Day Services are celebrating National Long Term Care Month with an open house on Monday Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and a family luncheon on Nov. 27 at 11:30 a.m. The Adult Day Services are located on the Chain Street side of the SAAC building at 536 George Street.
The Adult Day Services provide a structured program of activities and daily exercise, encouraging social interaction with peers for individuals who can no longer stay by themselves.
Coordinator Rondi Bedor, RN, explains, "This program serves a dual purpose. It offers the attendees an opportunity to interact with a peer group while participating in mentally stimulating and enjoyable activities in a supportive setting. It also provides a safe environment for seniors whose family members need to leave their loved ones to work or run errands or just take a break."
The family luncheon will offer thanks to caregivers for their love and support. A Music Jamboree will follow with Diane Kolessar, the center's music therapist. Other frequent visitors are the SPCA, Local Day Care Centers (providing intergenerational activities), and local entertainers.
Montco SAAC is a private non-profit organization, providing multiple services to adults over 50. On site parking is available in their lot and they are accessible by TransNet. For more information, call 610-275-1960 or stop by!
