Adult Day Care.
We have discovered Adult Day Care for my mother and love it. Our local facility runs $11.00 an hour up to 11 hrs. per day. A full day is discounted. We drop mom off for a few hours, she has a ball, although she remembers nothing, and we get a chance to get away and get things done. They feed them, play games and do different activities. All with people her age doing social interaction. We seldom leave her more than a few hours a couple days a week and they bill us at the end of the month. Best idea ever for a few bucks a day. Maybe they will extend their hours into the evening for early nights out. For those interested, check it out. The staff is wonderful with the folks and they all seem to have a great time.
