Senior Care In Ventura County
What does Senior Care In Ventura County mean at Oxnard Family Circle ADHC?
Our definition of senior care in Ventura County is making your loved one feel safe and cared about on a daily basis while providing mental and social stimulation, healthy meals and medication (if necessary), personal care, entertainment and exercise, therapy for both the mind and body, and caregiver respite and support.
Mental and Social Stimulation For Seniors
Too often, seniors who live at home cannot visit friends frequently as it may be difficult to make plans or get from place to place. Oxnard Family Circle is a program that is designed specifically to enhance your loved one’s social life by creating a group setting where individuals are encouraged to socialize and befriend one another. Having the ability to see friends on a daily basis can vastly improve quality of life and mental health. We also encourage participants to participate in group-style games and mentally stimulating activities to help keep cognitive functioning sharp.
Medication For Seniors
We keep in touch with your physician and only distribute medication as directed by that physician. Oxnard Family Circle will follow up on the progress of the participant and implement your doctor’s orders.
Diet and Nutrition For Seniors
Our senior day care program in Ventura County cooks and serves two fresh meals per day that include healthy choices like fruits, vegetables, chicken and fish that are low-fat and low-sodium. We implement a variety of spices to help enhance flavors and keep our meals healthy. We also offer special blended diets for those who may have difficulty swallowing or chewing food. Our dietician is available to design personalized diets if necessary and provide dietary counseling.
Entertainment For Seniors
Our senior day care program in Ventura County provides entertainment and fun activities on a daily basis.
