Alzheimer’s Orange County (AlzOC) operates two Adult Day Service centers focused on maintaining healthy aging for frail seniors and those with memory loss, providing occupational and physical therapies, nutritionist-guided meals recreation and more. The centers, located near Laguna Woods and in Garden Grove, will now operate under a new name but maintain the same programs and services the Orange County community depends on.
Removing the term Adult Day Services, AlzOC has renamed Acacia Adult Day Services and South County Adult Day Services Center to Healthy Aging Center: Acacia and Healthy Aging Center: Laguna Woods respectively. The new names will better reflect their goal to promote healthy living for older adults and other individuals that need daytime assistance for their health needs, including those with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. Located in Laguna Woods and Garden Grove, these adult day licensed entities provide exemplary social and healthcare programs with a person-centered approach focused on the needs of local families.
The centers have opened and resumed in-person services modified according to health and safety protocols based on California Department of Aging guidelines. The programs assure a safe and stimulating social environment that supports healthy aging, well-being and independence, while giving family caregivers a vital break, knowing that loved ones are in a safe place.
Services provided by the centers include a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snack; and comprehensive health supports, including nursing, activities supervision, medication management, and personal care as needed. Activities and exercise are tailored to meet everyone’s needs, including arts and music programs; comprehensive therapy; medical supervision for those with physical and cognitive impairment; opportunities for social interaction with peers; and round-trip transportation.
These programs are designed to improve the quality of life of its participants while also offering a more affordable option than in-home care or other health support options families may consider. Funding may be available for individuals meeting program criteria requirements who are Medi-Cal eligible or who carry private insurance. Private pay is also available.
For nearly 40 years, AlzOC has led the way with critical programs and services aimed at helping those living with memory loss. Throughout that history, we have strived to find new ways to maximize our impact and adapt to meet our community’s health and wellness needs through unique programs like Adult Day Health Care Centers – now Healthy Aging Centers. This name change symbolizes our organization’s commitment to that idea and helping Orange County’s older adults and others that can benefit from these programs.
