Daily Living Center Stories

Elizabeth looks forward to her days at the Daily Living Center but quickly tells everyone that she was really scared when she was first told that she was going to be attending. Her daughter is her primary caregiver but she works full time and was seeking a place where her mother could have good care and also an opportunity to socialize with other senior adults.

Elizabeth knew that she could not stay alone and that her daughter needed to work, but she was afraid that she was being “put in a home” when she was brought to the Daily Living Center for her first day. She did not want to get up and get ready and tried to convince her daughter that she was too sick to leave home. After finally agreeing to give this new place a try, she quickly learned that it was not a long-term-care facility and that she would be returning home each afternoon.

Now she looks forward to each day at the Daily Living Center and tells everyone that this is her home during the day. Her daughter is able to continue working, knowing that Elizabeth is having a good day in a place that will help her to remain active as long as possible.
