Elderday Center to open satellite campus in Elgin later this fall

Beginning this November, the Elderday Center will be opening a satellite campus (Elderday North) at the First Christian Church Ministry Center in Elgin.

At Elderday Center, we have been blessed to serve the Pearls of our community for 30 years through the therapeutic adult day services program.

Elderday Center's therapeutic daily activity program provides daytime structure for up to 35 participants. Providing a nutritious lunch as well as two snacks each day, along with therapeutic social activities, music therapy, expressive art activities, therapeutic activities with pets, exercises, and activities of daily living. Our "Pearls" (members) are well cared for.

Elderday serves older adults with mild to moderate memory loss and/or physical dysfunction, as well as family caregivers of all ages.

Located in the Bethany Lutheran Ministry Center at 328 W. Wilson St. in Batavia, Elderday Center has primarily served the Tri-Cities and surrounding townships providing essential services for vulnerable seniors and their at-risk family caregivers.

Elderday Center is now beginning its phase two project to serve the northern portion of Kane County. Its mission is to provide quality therapeutic day services, to promote independence in older adults, and to provide support and education for their caregivers.

One of Elderdays key objectives is to allow participants to remain in a positive home environment, within the general community, for as long as safely possible.

Through the Seniors Helping Seniors division, they also provide in-home compassionate care to seniors in need. Seniors Helping Seniors has been serving the Fox Valley area for six years and provides quality care for seniors who want to stay home.

As the name denotes, 90% of the caregivers are seniors, age 60 or older.

For many of the caregivers, they see this as an extension of their personal ministry and a way to keep invested in the lives of some of the most precious members of society, our "Pearls."
