1/14/2020 - Town of Huntington Adult Day Care Among Four Huntington Facilities Making “The List” on Long Island Business News

Huntington – Long Island Business News (LIBN) has ranked adult day care facilities in their January 3-9, 2020 edition and the Town of Huntington Adult Day Care (ADC) program joins three privately-run adult day care facilities within the Town on The List with the highest intake capacity on Long Island.

 

Town of Huntington Adult Day Care can accept 35 participants per day. Joining Town of Huntington Adult Day Care on The List are Gurwin Medical & Social Adult Day Care Program in Commack (145/day), Carillon Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (60/day), and The Bristal Assisted Living at East Northport (10/day).

 

“Our Adult Day Care program offers flexible service, providing socialization opportunities in a safe, happy and structured environment for the participant but also to provide respite for the caregiver,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci.

 

Since 1984, Town of Huntington Adult Day Care has offered extraordinary social model day care services for Huntington’s mature adult community. The wide range of programs, resources, facilities, and staff are available to all Suffolk County residents sixty years of age and older (younger in some instances). Town of Huntington Adult Day Care caters to those individuals who are experiencing decreased levels of physical and cognitive abilities, including those with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease who are in need of supervision in a safe and structured environment.

 

Services are available Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm at 423 Park Avenue, Huntington. Members may attend one to five days per week. A continental breakfast and nutritious main meal are served daily with assorted snacks and beverages available throughout the day. Huntington Adult Day Care provides a structured program of daily activities, crafts, parties with live entertainment, and day trips that help maintain physical and cognitive abilities, socialization, companionship and enhanced self-esteem.

 

The Town’s Senior Division social worker offers caregivers monthly evening and daytime support groups, referrals, assistance, and semi-annual events.

 

Individual transportation, with handicapped accessibility, is provided free of charge for Town of Huntington residents. Fees are budget-friendly and are accepted by some long-term care insurance plans and Medicaid managed care providers. The Suffolk County Office for the Aging (SCOFA) respite care grant may pay for one to two days per week for those who qualify. Funding for Huntington Adult Day Care is provided by Town of Huntington, the Administration for Community Living through New York State Office for the Aging, and Suffolk County Office for the Aging.

 

Residents and caregivers may inquire with Town of Huntington Adult Day Care Program Supervisor Amy Geist at (631) 351-3293, amy.geist@huntingtonny.gov or huntingtonny.gov/adc.
