Programs for seniors allow people to age with dignity | The Anchor

The positive energy at the Bethany House, an adult day health care facility in Taunton, is promoted by director Phoebe Worcester and exemplified in her staff.

"We offer a high quality of life activity to people who if they weren't here would most likely be in a nursing home," explained Worcester, herself a registered nurse.
...
The Bethany House offers a unique setting that allows not only the ability for an aging loved one to be taken care of during the day, said Worcester, but also the facility itself is a medical daycare. Physical and occupational therapy are just some of the treatments woven in with therapeutic activities; even diets are monitored carefully.
Acknowledging that most insurance companies, including Medicare, do not fund adult day health services, Worcester will push for seniors to contact Bristol Elder Services as a potential resource for monetary aid.
"It's a wonderful service because it taps the senior into the local senior services provider," said Worcester, "and if they're not eligible for daycare, then they may be eligible for some other services like Meals on Wheels or a homemaker."
Worcester shared a story of one elderly couple that was referred by Bristol Elder Services and are benefitting from the daycare program.
"She has Alzheimer's. He walks with a cane, and brings her in by car, walks her in and she's here for the day," said Worcester.
...
Worcester cites a story of an elderly mother who has two daughters living at a great distance and who lives at home with the beginning stages of Alzheimer's; the mother has a personal home health aid who meets the bus at the end of her day at the Bethany House.
"The daughter is so grateful that it's a consistent, structured environment," said Worcester. "The best slowing down process for Alzheimer's is to have a structured environment, so we always encourage Alzheimer's patients to come as many days as they can. They usually improve when they start coming, for a while anyway; it's the best slowing down process to their disease."
Both women said they become the eyes and ears of the family members. Sullivan said it comes with the territory that her day doesn't always end at four o'clock, and Worcester explained the collaboration between her staff and the resident's personal doctors.
...
It is a medical model," said Worcester.
Yet within all the monitoring, there is some fun. The activities director at the Bethany House creates monthly calendars full of themed events that currently have the residents working on floats for Mardi Gras.
"We try to make it a fun place to be, all the while overlooking their medical and personal needs," said Worcester.
Twice a month, eighth graders from Taunton Catholic Middle School visit Bethany House and sit with the residents and engage them in activities, said Worcester.
...
Additional resources cited by Sullivan and Worcester include Bristol Elder Services (www.BristolElder.org) and Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance (www.VeteranAid.org), a monetary aid program available for veterans of WWII or the Korean War and/or their spouses to help offset the cost of home or assisted living care.
