HAGERSTOWN --Â National Adult Day Service Week of Easter Seals will hold an open house Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to help raise awareness of the availability and accessibility of one of the few adult day programs in Washington County.
The Easter Seals Adult Day Service Center is at 101 E. Baltimore St.
There will be tours, door prizes, food and activities.
"Many people think that the only care available for seniors and adults with disabilities are assisted-living facilities, nursing homes or in-home care providers. The Easter Seals model meets the same needs at a fraction of the cost," said Lisa Reeves, Easter Seals president/CEO.
Easter Seals provides medical and social day services to adults and seniors with a variety of disabilities. Eligible individuals require more support and attention than can be provided in recreational senior centers.
Persons served include those with visual impairments, advanced arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Other conditions may include depression, history of stroke, chronic respiratory disease and limited mobility.Â
