Adult Day Center: Interview with Executive Director, Jessica

Last updated: October 2022

Social interaction is important for all of us. Engaging with others brings us joy and a sense of a belonging.

The opportunity to interact with others may become limited for individuals with Alzheimer's as the disease progresses. Fortunately, there are social day programs available to caregivers and their loved ones that provide those services.

Adult day centers

Adult day centers can benefit those living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers. They are a safe space for clients to interact throughout the day with no shame of "forgetting my words". Caregivers are given a few hours of respite to have some time for themselves.

It's a win-win situation for all.

I was fortunate enough to sit down and learn more about adult day centers with Jessica Curtis, Executive Director of The Tender. You can view our interview below.
