Valley Adult Day Services (VADS) has had a change in management. VADS will be reopening it’s doors February 22, 2021 at 7:30 am – 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Staff is excited to open to our participants and serve the Porterville and surrounding communities. VADS serves those with cognitive impairments; such as acute memory loss, traumatic brain injuries, Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia.
A lot of times these individuals are still aware and functioning, but cannot stay at home alone.
Our goal is to provide respite for caregivers, so that they may work without worrying about their care receiver being alone or just simply need rest and/or a break.
At VADS, we provide a care plan for your care receiver that consists of goals. These goals are targeted towards maintaining improving the skills of the care receiver. We do activities that help them improve their cognitive abilities such as reading, writing, math, board games, memory games, guided meditation, therapeutic coloring, sensory games, etc,. We do daily walking and exercise as well as physical activities that help maintain and improve the care receiver’s physical abilities. We provide a fun, open and safe environment. Our priority is to make the care receiver feel like they have a purpose at VADS through a range of activities catered towards what they used to do or like to do.
We want to help them maintain their independence, dignity and quality of life so that they may continue to live at home.
