Adult Daycare Facility Fills Urgent Need In The Area

Aug 30, 2019 03:21PM
Opening its doors on November 27, 2018, The Scotland House (Woodstock Area Adult Day Services) started welcoming participants as a Vermont Domestic Non-Profit Corporation Adult Day Program.

The concept and need of this health and wellness program has been in discussion since 2016 as the creation of a variety of community members and health care providers who identified a pressing need and a gap in services. Community organizers who saw the need for this type of service as a critical resource for frail elders and their stressed caregivers in our rural area created our organization. 

The Mission statement is as follows. To care for vulnerable, valued clients and to provide support by helping them maintain available presence within their community and with their loved ones. To support each caregiver of those in the program by providing respite, relief, and an enhanced relationship with the person for whom they care.

How will this happen? Staff will support our participants as they stay in their own homes by providing nursing care as needed, socialization, companionship, life enrichment programs, and a nutritious meal and snacks. Professional and experienced staff are also a resource and support to the devoted family members and caregivers who have dedicated their lives to keeping their loved one at home and out of a long term care setting.

The Scotland House focuses on three main goals: high quality healthcare, high client and caregiver satisfaction, and reduced health care cost.

The Scotland House is open Monday-Friday from 7:30am—5:00pm.  Please note that this is not a drop-in program. All participants must be formally enrolled with a minimum of two half-days a week.
