Helping Visitors Make Friends

Helping Visitors Make Friends

Thinking about attending a Day Care Center doesn't seem like a huge decision but it can feel like it to many who prefer the comfort of their own home. While Day Care Centers are activity filled, safe environments, one thing many people worry about, no matter what age we’re at, is making friends. At The Northeast Adult Day Care Center, we pride ourselves on providing a safe, caring and friendly environment for both new and old clients and of course, as creating friendships is important for an individual's emotional and mental health, it’s part of our focus. Friendship can greatly improve quality of life. As a care provider, there are various methods and strategies that we apply in order to make the first visit to our facility an easy and happy one!

Establish the basics...

Our personable staff often inquires about likes and dislikes regarding things such as food or activities. How would the new visitor like to be addressed and how they prefer to spend their time; do they enjoy watching television or listening to the radio? Maybe they enjoy quiet time to read? Knowledge is power as they say! That’s why we always do our research beginning with you and your family to make sure you’re feeling comfortable from the moment you enter our Day Care Center to the moment you head home.

Finding common interests...

With every new client that decides to visit the Northeast Adult Day Care, we work to identify common interests or background that they have with other visitors at the Center. This can be previous home towns/cities, likes or dislikes, etc. This is a great way to speed up the bonding process with other clients and make individuals more confident in their ability to make new friends. 

Group activities...

Group activities are a great way to get new people interacting with each other. Through our extensive activity schedule, there are many opportunities for new visitors to take part in hobbies with other like-minded people. A fun environment allows individuals to relax, making talking or getting to know new people easier. At the Northeast Adult Day Care Center, even lunchtime is a group activity, with our restaurant-style eating experience, new visitors will soon feel like a confident regular lunching with friends.

Easing Stress...

Our highly trained and competent staff are always on hand to not just administer medication and keep you safe, we're always here to ensure your experience, whether on your first day or your 45th visit to the Center is stress-free, fulfilling and friendly. Communication is key in establishing new friendships which is why we're happy to listen to any concerns or answer any questions during your visits to ensure that you're stress-free!
