Attendees will learn about Elant’s medical model, ‘Daybreak’ social model and a new program for individuals with all levels of dementia which provide high quality care for recipients and caregiver respite
GOSHEN, N.Y (Sept. 14, 2015) — Elant at Goshen will be holding two upcoming open house events to educate attendees about Adult Day program options for their loved ones on Wednesday, Sept. 30 from 1 to 7 p.m. and on Oct. 3 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its Goshen campus on Harriman Drive.
Elant’s Adult Day programs have been in place since 1996. Day program options feature an Adult Day Health Care program (ADHC) for people in need of health care services, also known as a medical model program, and a social model known as Daybreak, according to Holly Berry, R.N., adult day program director.
This past spring, Elant also introduced a new program developed for those individuals with all levels of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, made possible through a New York State grant.
“The program benefits are tremendous,” Berry said. “For caregivers, these programs are extremely helpful because we help to relieve the stress caregivers may have due to the challenges associated with caring for their loved ones. It gives them a needed and welcome respite.” As that happens, Berry added, Elant employees ensure proper, quality care for the recipient and that all medical and/or social needs are met.
