Budget Cuts Hurt Services for Vulnerable Seniors
State budget cuts are disallowing services for many currently able to get medical and other help at adult day health centers like L'Chaim.
Since 1999, our L'Chaim Adult Day Health Center has provided outstanding medical, rehabilitative, and social services to thousands of elderly and disabled clients.
At L'Chaim, we offer a variety of services under one roof, specially tailored to meet individuals' and families' needs in a warm, supportive, and friendly atmosphere. Our staff of professionals provide nursing and personal care; case management; physical, occupational, massage, and speech therapy; nutritional counseling; and recreational and socialization activities. Transportation, hot lunch, and snacks are also provided. Our goals are to maintain and enhance our clients' health; help them to remain independent in their homes and community for as long as possible; and reduce the likelihood of their falling, visiting the emergency room, or remaining hospitalized for prolonged stays, and avoiding premature institutional care.
Center hours are 9:00 am - 1:00 pm and 2:30 - 6:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Staff are available 8:30 am - 7:00 pm on those days. We offer a sliding scale fee and free services to Medi-Cal participants.
