Evergreen Senior Services
The ReDCo Group Evergreen Senior Services opened the first adult day center in Schuylkill County in 1984. At this time two center locations are available serving a large area of the county. The Adult Day Centers offer daytime services to the elderly and the disabled adult population while providing respite to the caregiver. Individuals can remain at home where they are most comfortable while families can have peace of mind in knowing their loved one is being cared for during the day. Participation may be full-time or part-time to meet the needs of the individual and caregiver.
Evergreen offers planned social, recreational activities which are both enjoyable and habilitative in nature. Activities are designed to achieve the following objectives:
- To stimulate memory and cognitive ability
- To encourage physical exercise and well being
- To provide opportunity for friendship and peer support
- To improve nutritional intake
- To increase verbal skills and mobility
- To enhance the quality of each day for both the participant and the primary caregiver
In addition, personal care services are provided as well as assistance with medications and health monitoring.
Evergreen centers operate Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Schuylkill County residents 60 years of age and older may be eligible for financial sponsorship by the Schuylkill County Office of Senior Services. In addition, funding may be available through several Waiver programs and the Veterans Administration. Transportation may also be available through Schuylkill County's Transit Service.
Evergreen is licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Office on Aging as an Older Adult Living Center.
