"Day care for the elderly is a dark secret that has to come out in the open," said Gail Weisberg, executive director of the Daniel D. Cantor Senior Center in Sunrise.
As a result, the programming, using trained volunteers and professionals, is "fail-free," Weisberg
At the same time, Weisberg
stressed, respite for the caregiver is of equal importance.Indeed, by bringing their loved one into the center, the caregiver is given peace of mind, knowing that their loved one is in a safe and protective environment.
"The people we provide for have challenges that run the gamut, ranging from Parkinson's disease, to strokes, to Alzheimer's disease," Weisberg
said, emphasizing that the facilities are locked for their clients' safety. Weisberg
said that, while the program provides needed services to the community, "the money from Federation allows us to serve the total community."
"We also receive funding from the state of Florida, and through private pay," Weisberg
said."With the funds from Federation, however, we are able to serve the families that wouldn't have the money to afford this on their own."
Noting that kosher meals and transportation are provided, Weisberg
said each day the day care center services as many as 100 people."It's a very important program," she
said, "and we're just glad we're able to continue on with it."
