A day at Priscilla's Cottage
Come spend your day with us!
Priscilla's Cottage is an Adult Daycare founded in 2014. We come from a background of care giving and our mission statement is to be there for you when you need us. Our hours are as flexible as can be, come for an hour or stay for a day, we'll work with your schedule because we know how hectic it can be.
We know it has been a very long quarantine for all of the caregivers out there, and with that in mind we're happy to announce that Priscilla's Cottage is open once more to both new and returning clients.
We have Covid-19 safety protocols in place (check them out here!), so your loved ones will be as safe as they possible could be while they're in our care. Their safety and comfort are our top priorities!
We will be social distancing, which means we will be taking on a limited number of clients everyday. So be sure to contact us ASAP!
Also, we will be taking Medicaid clients very soon! Stay tuned for updates!
We're looking forward to making new friends and welcoming back our old ones.
A message to caregivers
Advice for quarantine with your loved ones from our founder, Sheryl
I know this isolation is tough when you live with someone who has dementia. I hope all of the caregivers are able to take breaks during the day.
If your loved one is safe alone for a few minutes, step outside to refresh your mind. If you cannot leave them, close your eyes and take some deep breaths.
I could not leave my mom's side so I would put her in a chair, close my eyes, breathe deeply and count to 10. It truly helped relieve the stress. Caregiving for a loved one with dementia is the toughest job there is, remember to take care of yourself too.
A few ideas to help make your social distancing isolation caregiving a bit easier.
Bake or cook simple recipes together.
Clean around the house. Sweep the patio, fold towels or tasks that help the person feel a sense of accomplishment.
Do arts and crafts, such as knitting, painting, coloring. Keep patterns and tools simple. Google is your friend for ideas.
Look at books the person used to enjoy.
Organize household or office items, particularly if the person used to take pleasure in organizational tasks.
Read the newspaper.
Play music or sing songs.
Tend the garden or visit a botanical garden.
Watch family videos.
Work on puzzles, word searches, simple crossword puzzles. You can find these online and print them out.
Youtube can become your best friend. You can find, music, television shows, bird watching just about anything to keep them engaged for a while.
Chair exercise with them or get them up and walking. Again youtube can help with exercise videos for seniors. If they sit all day sleeping at night might become an issue.
If you have questions or just need to talk to someone call the 24 hour line. I know this isolation is toughest on caregivers of loved ones with dementia.
