Be Our Guest Adult Day Service
At Livingston Catholic Charities, one of our most popular program is our Be Our Guest Adult Day Service, commonly referred to as "BOGADS." BOGADS is a valuable resource for individuals and families dealing with dementia and forms of dementia such as Alzheimer’s as well as other chronic health concerns (Parkinson’s, Lewy Body Disease, etc.). BOGADS provides a person centered day that consists of therapeutic recreation, social activities, and helps participants find purpose and meaning in their day.
At Be Our Guest Adult Day Service, seniors get together to enjoy fun life enrichment activities to include:
- Art Therapy*
- Cooking groups
- Sitter-size – chair exercises
- Bowling, shuffleboard, bean bag toss and more
- Brain Gym
- Music Therapy, sing-a longs, playing instruments*
- Pet Therapy
- Laughter Therapy
*Art therapy, music therapy and other activities provided by funding from the Robert W. & Maxine C. Parker Foundation.
With our BOGADS program, caregivers receive a break from 24 hour care, a partner in caregiving, reassurance that their loved one is in a safe and nurturing environment, care plans and specialized support services, information and referrals to community resources, flexible and affordable, offering a sliding scale fee, and access to dementia specific support group and education.
