Support Adult Day Care

 

Last updated 6/9/2021 at 11:01am



Imagine a day in the life of a caregiver – 24 hours. Your loved one is up at all hours. You must assure their safety. When awake, they follow you everywhere. You must help with everything: eating, bathing, dressing, toileting. There is no “me time.” You may even have to quit work.

Now imagine an adult day care facility that offers weekday care, activities, meals and love to your family member. That is MountainCare Adult Day, formerly KOALA, here in Brevard. For hundreds of participants over the years, this has been a lifesaver. Tragically, when HCA bought the Mission system, they refused to maintain support of this vital service. Therefore, it is time for our loving, giving community to help so this vital service can continue.

Perhaps the saddest part of the dementia, which touches so many, is that the life process is reversed. Walking, talking, all daily activities decline. The reversal is heartbreaking. There is not the hope of future growth, only decline. Please don’t let adult day care in Brevard decline for the families who depend on it.
