Adult Day Care of Calvert County is proud to announce additions to the adult day services provided by our nonprofit organization to help fill some gaps in the care of elderly & disabled adults. Adult day services are designed to enhance the health and well-being of participants, and provide some relief to their caregivers. These types of programs allow at-risk individuals to remain in their homes longer, and often delay or prevent inappropriate or personally undesirable institutionalization. Daily fees for services are typically less than other care options and can be combined with other forms of care (such as assisted living or in-home care). Grants, provisions, Medicaid waivers or VA benefits are available for qualifying programs to reduce costs for those who are financially eligible.
We now offer Senior Center Plus, a social model day care program certified by the Maryland Department of Aging, in addition to our current Adult Medical Day Care program licensed and regulated by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Both programs feature structured community-based activities, lunch and snacks, supervision, and an individual plan of care. The Adult Medical Day Care program includes nursing services and door-to-door transportation. A level of care, eligibility & need determination will help fit the potential participant to the right program.
More exciting news! Introducing Memory Break, a pilot program for weekday sessions of up to 2 hours of supervision at a low cost. The Adult Day Care of Calvert County staff will host a morning Memory Break session from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. and an afternoon Memory Break session from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. These sessions are designed to offer caregivers a short break to run errands and provide the participant with non-medical supervision and companionship in a safe social setting. The target audience for this program includes individuals showing early signs of dementia. No formal referral or assessment is required, but 48 hours advance registration is required for planning purposes.
Finally, the best news of all! Adult Day Care of Calvert County has been allocated Maryland tax credits to use as an incentive to help generate an increase in community contributions to our nonprofit organization. CITC (Community Investment Tax Credits) in the amount of $15,000.00 were awarded to us by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development to help us reach our goal of $30,000.00 for improvements in program transportation, office technology and the care team. Businesses or individuals who donate $500.00 or more can receive half of the donation amount back in tax credits through the CITC. These credits are in addition to state and federal charity deductions.
