Social Model Adult Day Care: The Linwood Center
The Department sponsors an Adult Day Care Center located in Allegany. This center provides services for adults who may not require 24 hour care, but who may benefit from supervision, nutrition, personal care, and social stimulation in a non-institutional day setting. The center offers activities planned and designed to meet the specific needs and abilities of each participant according to an individualized plan of care.
In addition to providing for basic needs, the center offers:
- Assistance with personal care
- Nutritious breakfast and noon meal
- A structured therapeutic activity program
- Transportation and escort services
- Case management services
Admission to the center is open to individuals who reside in Cattaraugus County, are age 60 or older, and have a chronic limiting condition (e.g., social isolation, disorientation, mental disability, physical impairment). Schedules are arranged in advance according to participant and family needs and range from one to five days per week.
A suggested contribution is determined on an individual basis and is based on a sliding scale. Third party payment may be available.
