This project will provide people with dementia a safe environment, nutritional lunches and snacks, social stimulation through group activities, physical exercise programs, and individualized therapies
An exact percentage of people living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias is unknown in Honduras, but doctors treating these conditions attest to an increase in cases. Even so, the country has very few services to offer these individuals or their caregiving families. Harsh economic realities necesitate that most adults work, making even more difficult the task of caring for family members with dementia. This project will provide daily care and social stimulation for these individuals.
The Adult Day Center will provide quality care for people living with dementia while allowing family members to work, run errands, practice self-care, etc. Center fees will be charged on a sliding scale to assist low-income families
As the first Adult Day Center in Honduras, the Center will fulfill a growing need in the community and help to improve the quality of life for 20 families and their loved ones with dementia.
