New Beginnings Adult Day Services provides handicap accessible vehicles for transporting clients to and from the center.
We also provide outings each day to local doctor visits and various other community related outings needed by each participant.
Meals include a light breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. Menus follow USDA guidelines and are approved by a Registered Dietician. All meals are served hot and fresh and prepared onsite using ServSafe® practices. Alternative meals are available for clients with special dietary needs.
Fun activities are planned each month by the Activities Coordinator. The activities are structured so that our participants receive cognitive stimulation, physical exertion, hand-eye coordination and social interaction. Examples include picnics, coffee socials, group games, group singing, exercise, monthly birthday parties, arts and crafts, devotions, word searches, field trips, gardening, community involvement, cards and BINGO.
General Health Assessment, Vital Signs, Medication Monitoring, Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ambulating, toileting, feeding), First Aid, Health Education, Blood Sugar Checks, and Diabetic Foot Checks — New Beginning's RN's and LPN's will maintain open communication between the participant’s doctor and the client/caregiver. We also have an in-house Family Nurse Practitioner. As a health care team we develop a coordinated plan of care to meet each participant's needs.
New Beginnings has a full-time in house Licensed Social Worker to meet the needs of our participants. Many participants do not have nearby family members or in-home caregivers to assist with their care. Social Services often helps clients arrange doctor visits, secure assistance through community programs, advocate , and advise on available community resources and assistance services.
We care about our participants and look for ways to enrich their lives both as individuals and as members of our community. We provide a way for our participants to avoid loneliness by being part of a supporting group of friends. To expand these horizons, New Beginnings also works with local charities and other community groups.
The mission of New Beginnings Home Maker Services is to strengthen family life, promote self-sufficiency, and enhance the quality of life of frail elderly and disabled adults through the provision of homemaker services. Homemaker services are designed to allow functionally impaired adults to continue living in their homes by sending home health aides to the home to provide assistance with the activities of daily living, housekeeping, laundry, meal planning, marketing, food preparation and other home management tasks to reduce the risk of institutionalization.
The mission of New Beginnings In-Home Respite Services is to strengthen family life, provide companionship, support, or general supervision, feeding and personal care needs, and provide non-medical care and supervision to the client in the absence of the client's primary full-time caregiver on a short term basis to enhance the quality of family life to assist the caregiver during a crisis situation and for scheduled relief to the primary caregiver to prevent or avoid institutionalization of frail, elderly, disabled, and mentally impaired adults. This allows caregivers to have a break, handle their personal business, run errands, etc. with the help of a home maker staying with the client while the caregiver is away.
