Nonprofit Spotlight: Jud C. Hickey Center for Alzheimer’s Care
This month, Premier Networx is highlighting the Jud C. Hickey Center for Alzheimer’s Care with our Nonprofit Spotlight. Learning that your loved one has Alzheimer’s or another dementia is devastating. The normal lives of the affected individual and family caregiver are forever changed. The person living with the disease may no longer be able to work, drive or socialize as they did before. The caregiver has new and additional responsibilities in addition to their regular lives.
The Jud C. Hickey Center gives you both your lives back during the day!
For the member, the Center provides an opportunity to socialize with others that are going through the same thing. All activities and interactions for our members promote decision-making and physical and mental well-being, all while maintaining dignity.
For the Caregiver, it provides an opportunity for a much-needed break from providing care. The Jud C. Hickey Center for Alzheimer’s Care provides a safe, nurturing and attentive environment for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s/dementia who need supervision while their families are working, running errands or taking a break. The Day Center provides a structured, comprehensive program that abides by government standards and provides a variety of health, social and related support services in a protective setting.
Trained staff members assist with personal care and meaningful activities. Programs within the Center promote independence, freedom of choice and cognitive thinking. Members attend on a pre-scheduled basis. Walk-ins are not accepted.
The Jud C. Hickey Center is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Activities include: music, art and pet therapy; range of motion exercises; reminiscence games and activities; and recreational programs
The Day Center Programs fall under the supervision of the Director, a Registered Nurse (RN) with a Master’s Degree in Nursing. Additional staff includes Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs).
