MAY 16, 2022 – ROCHESTER, NY – On Friday, May 20, Jewish Senior Life will celebrate one year since their Adult Day Health Care program reopened with a day of food, magic, and fun. The medical model program was forced to shut its doors on March 16, 2020 due to the pandemic –– leaving many members and their caregivers without necessary supportive services for nearly fifteen months. They reopened on May 21 of last year.
“COVID-19 changed everything for New York State adult day health providers two years ago, leaving many of our members and families without resources. We were so happy to welcome our members back last year. Since then, we have overcome a few more hurdles from the pandemic and remain open. That calls for a celebration,” says Amanda Bement, Adult Day Health Care Program Director. The all-day event will include carnival games starting after 9:30 AM, a barbecue lunch at 11:30 AM followed by ice cream, and a magic performance from Mike Seege from 12:30 until 1PM.
Jewish Senior Life’s Adult Day Health Care program is one of the largest in the Greater Rochester area. In addition to providing assistance with medication, personal care, meals, activities, and access to physical and occupational therapy. Hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM until 4:30 PM.
