Adult Day Service
Goodwill Adult Day Care Center is a community-based group program designed to meet the needs of functionally impaired adults in the Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas Region. It is a structured, comprehensive program that provides a variety of health, social, and other related support services. Caring for a loved one requires both time and energy. It can be an exhausting, full-time job. Regular day care attendance can give families time to meet their own needs, while having the comfort of knowing that their loved one is being cared for by licensed or certified professional care staff.

Who needs Adult Day Services?
Most participants are older adults who may need some help in self-care or require supervision. For example, they may be:
Partially dependent on others: We assist people who cannot manage all the tasks of daily living but do not need round-the-clock care
In need of good nutrition: Hot, balanced meals and snacks are provided for our participants. Special diet accommodations are also available
Socially isolated: Many older adults don't get out often or see others their own age. We provide activities and a place to socialize
Physically impaired: We provide activities for our participants recovering from stroke, surgery, or those with Parkinson's disease or other diseases and disorders
Mentally confused: We offer structured activities and individual care to help those with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and other memory disorders allowing them to stay involved in everyday life
Goodwill Adult Day Services offer:
Medical Help: We utilize prevention programs designed to avoid problems before they start, such as monitoring existing medical conditions, assistance with self-care, diet recommendations, and rehabilitation assistance from professionals
Social Opportunities: Adults have a chance to meet with others of about the same age and/or circumstance, enjoy organized activities designed for their age group or special needs, and work together on group projects
Emotional Support: We can help support those who feel inadequate or incapable, remind people that they are not alone in their problems or fears, and encourage participants to try new activities and continue those they have always enjoyed
Renewed Interest in Life: We provide a schedule for each day of activities and encourage participation in these activities. We promote focusing on the future, not the past. We even help some find the desire to go on living their life to the fullest and enjoying each new day
