ADA — DJK Enterprises of Ada announce the opening of a new Adult Day Service Center in the Ada and Pontotoc County region. The Adult Day Service Center started accepting applications for participants Feb. 20, 2006. The Center has been approved to accommodate up to 30 participants on a full time basis and will be open daily, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed Saturday, Sunday and holidays. When opened, services provided will include counseling, direct personal care assistance, meals and snacks, daily socialization activities, exercise regimen, educational daily and planned outings.

“We at DJK Enterprises take special pride in announcing this needed service for our community. The need for alternative care facilities for our loved ones has increased tremendously in the past few years. The stigma of having to enroll our parents, children and loved ones into permanent care facilities when not actually needed is now passe. Adult Day Service Centers, such as ours, allows the working family members an alternate refuge for their loved ones. This program allows the participants to retain their autonomy and increases essential social integration into their lives. Social isolation is one of the main social ills that create unwanted depression and depleted mental and physical health. Our intent at DJK Adult Day Services is to help participants in our community to maintain and improve that personal autonomy and assist in creating a healthier lifestyle for those in need,” said Program Director Terry Worcester.

DJK Adult Day Service is in OKLAHOMA DHS compliance, The Department of Human Services provides funding for this activity for participants who meet DHS eligibility requirements. Private pay/insurance and Advantage waiver for Medicaid is also available with future veteran’s benefits acceptance pending approval.
