Experts agree that people living with memory loss may have difficulty remembering, but their emotions stay intact. Emotions such as love, joy, contentment, sadness, fear, embarrassment, and loneliness remain after words lose their meaning. At Revere Court, we train our staff in the special techniques of memory care. A simple act showing love can help diminish sadness, fear, embarrassment and loneliness while promoting joy and a sense of contentment. We all deserve nothing less.
Revere Court Day Club program is designed for those who need assistance and supervision while their family members are at work or are in need of a respite for a day. Nestled on 3 1/2 acres of serine gardens and walk ways our participants engage in physical and recreational activities, enjoy meals and snacks, and socialize with friends throughout the day in a comfortable and spacious clubhouse setting. Activities include but are not limited to exercise, sing-a-long, trivia, arts & crafts, and musical entertainment. Revere Court is also Music & Memory Certified & we are involved with Artisan Mind-an art program designed for those with a memory impairment.

Benefits of an Adult Day Program
Caregivers may feel reluctant to use adult day care services because they seem unfamiliar, or because a loved one is hesitant to try something new. Participants benefit from socializing with others and receiving needed care services. Caregivers benefit by getting a break from caregiving duties while knowing that a loved one is in good hands.
For the participant, adult day care’s benefits can be extensive:
- A safe, secure environment in which to spend the day
- Enjoyable and educational activities
- Improvement in mental and physical health
- Enhanced or maintained level of independence
- Socialization and peer support
- Nutritious meals and snacks
It’s usually challenging to admit you need help, especially if you’ve been a highly independent person used to caring for others all your life! And if you’re the caregiver, it may be equally difficult to consider allowing “strangers” to care for your beloved family member. Or you may feel guilty if your loved one is not initially willing to go.
You should seriously consider using an adult day care when a senior:
- Can no longer structure his or her own daily activities
- Is isolated and desires companionship
- Can’t be safely left alone at home
- Lives with someone who works outside the home or who is frequently away from home for other reasons
