SENIOR SCENE | ‘The Caring Place is a life saver for me … ‘

"The Caring Place is a lifesaver for me ... "

We hear this phrase very often from families who are caring for their loved one with Alzheimer's disease and dementia related illnesses.

We receive calls and emails frequently asking if there is a Caring Place in another area of the state. The Caring Place of Hot Springs is licensed by the state of Arkansas as an Adult Day Care Facility and there are very few facilities like TCP in the entire state. AARP recently published an extensive article about the benefits of programs like The Caring Place. The article talks about how the programs can bridge the gap for many families who are choosing home care versus institutionalization. We are extremely proud of our reputation and long-term commitment to the Hot Springs area.

If you are caring for a spouse, parent or other loved one with these diseases, you have already experienced the challenge. We can help you! Although hiring home health aides or caregivers to come to your home can be very beneficial to families in this situation, The Caring Place can help reduce social isolation and physical deterioration. Exercise programs, trivia and table games, daily devotionals, outside entertainment and art programs can improve the quality of life. The benefits of providing Respite Care and time to the family is even more valuable.

Many families choose The Caring Place because we provide a high-quality nurturing program that supports those individuals with Alzheimer's and/or dementia. The staff and volunteers that provide care, are dedicated to making sure our participants and their families receive the support and attention they need. We work with families on an individual basis to design a care plan and schedule that fits their needs.

If you are in this position and you are feeling alone, call The Caring Place today at 501-623-2881. We are located at 101 Quapaw Ave. Email Nina Alter, director, at [email protected] or visit our website, http://www.thecaringplacehotsprings.com.
