    HOMELINK - Adult Day Service CenterThe center offers a structured weekday program of personalized recreational activities, health, and social services for adults needing support and supervision during the day. Our Center is designed to provide opportunities for participants to adapt, restore, strengthen, and maintain self-care skills. The center also serves as a source of respite and support for families and other caregivers. Care is taken to create the right environment to suit our participant's abilities, needs and culture. Location 5 W. Mt. Airy Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19119 Participant Profile Persons who enroll in our adult day center are adults, generally over the age of 60, who are having difficulty managing everyday activities on their own. Center participants need assistance to varying degrees with performing routine self-care tasks (bathing, dressing, grooming) as well as home management (housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation). Recreation and Leisure Program The focus of the adult day center is on wellness through recreation and leisure. Programs are designed to restore, strengthen, and maintain well being. The benefits of therapeutic recreation include opportunities for: cognitive and physical stimulation; peer interaction; community involvement; building self-esteem and self-worth; gaining or possibly rekindling past interests; and, identifying methods of self-expression. Our structured program helps to reduce anxiety and brings comfort through a sense of belonging. Professional Services Nursing care is provided by an RN. The primary goal is to optimize the overall health and safety of the participants, and to educate and support caregivers. Participants are experiencing a broad range of complex, chronic health conditions including dementia, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and Parkinson's disease. Many participants are memory impaired. Direct care staff provide hands on support throughout the day. When an acute health episode results in hospitalization, the Social Worker and RN work closely with the primary physician and other professionals to plan for their discharge and monitor the participant's progress at home. In addition, Homelink assists caregivers with identifying primary care physicians including home visiting doctors specializing in geriatric care. The adult day center provides a respite resource to families and other caregivers. Information and referral, counseling and long term care planning are provided. Staff help to arrange for care at home and respite in a nursing home or assisted living facility. The monthly newsletter includes resource information and workshop announcements. Podiatric care is provided on site, helping to further reduce the demands on caregivers. Transport Some participants are transported to and from the center by caregivers while most use SEPTA ParaTransit. Staff work closely with caregivers and public funding sources to facilitate access to transportation services for both adult day center transport as well as travel to medical appointments. Payment The daily charge for adult day participation is paid by the consumer, caregiver or a public funding source. Homelink, Inc. is an Options and Waiver provider for the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging. In addition, the Philadelphia Department of Veterans Affairs supports eligible veterans in the center. Participants and their caregivers may choose to pay for additional days of attendance when their needs and interests exceed the resources available through public funding sources. Services are provided and admissions and referrals made without regard to race, sex, color, national origin, ancestry, religious creed, disability, age or sexual orientation.
