BENEFITING: BRITESIDE ADULT DAY CENTERS INC
Briteside Adult Day Center provides a comfortable, safe, home-like environment with friendly, reliable staff to help older adults (age 55+) in need of supervision during the day to maintain their vitality. While caregivers are at work or running errands, Briteside's highly-trained staff offer activities that enhance cognitive abilities and interaction with others, helping seniors to feel good physically and emotionally.
The overall aim of Briteside is to help families stay together by preventing premature placement of elderly family members into a long term care facility.
Briteside has touched the lives of many caregivers. Here is what a few of them had to say about their experience with Briteside:
"It gives me great peace of mind knowing that my loved one is surrounded by a loving staff providing meaningful activities. Without Briteside, I would have had to quit my job to stay home and provide care" Joan V., Current caregiver
"Without Briteside, one of us would have had to either quit out job to care for Mom or get another job to pay for homecare. This has been the best thing for my mom and has been a God send for me. She has been so much more stimulated and Briteside has aided her in her physical, emotional and mental health. I feel good knowing she is safe, happy and well cared for" Terry S., Former caregiver
"If not for Briteside, we would have had to prematurely place Dad in a nursing home. It was a good feeling dropping him off at Briteside on my way to work, knowing he would have a meaningful day, socialize, be well cared for, and surrounded by loving angels! I thank the amazing staff from the Directors, to the administration, to the program aides and nurses, every single one of you was compassionate and caring! I wish you all the love back that you give everyday" Cathy Z., Former caregiver
