NEWEST DC AREA ADULT DAY SOCIAL CLUB CENTER OPEN
The recent opening of Potomac Adult Day Services Center in Rockville now provides NW DC, Bethesda, Rockville and Potomac residents with an additional day placement option for loved ones experiencing early onset dementia. Located at 6220 Montrose Road, in Rockville, across the streets from the Jewish Community Center, the Potomac Adult Day Program is a non-medical Social Club Center that provides a quality recreational program for seniors with functional limitations and a respite for caregivers.
This is a new program option from Potomac Home Support, a non-profit personal and companion care service of Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals. The Social Club Center is a non-medical social program providing seniors with assistance and companionship during the day to maintain and enhance their independence. The daily fee of $75 is a more affordable option to in-home care, and an alternative to nursing homes. The Center operates daily, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 AM — 5:30 PM. Participants can attend 2-5 days a week. Medication is supervised. Meals include a light breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. Activities include structured games, arts and crafts, music therapy, lively discussion groups and daily exercise. Counseling can be arranged if requested. Transportation to and from the Social Club Program will be offered in the near future.
To learn how to enroll your family member, call Nicole Stassi, Center Director, at 301-770-2150.
