Why My Second Home?

  • Older adults do better when they are able to age in place and be active in their families and home communities.
  • Socialization, exercise, and good nutrition are the best ways to delay the natural progression of Alzheimer’s disease & other dementias.
  • A five year delay of onset would save the US $8.51 trillion.
  • 15 to 18% of older adults are estimated to suffer from depression.
  • We provide essential respite care for family members so that they can continue to work, maintain wellness, care for young children and maintain a strong family system.
  • Our innovative intergenerational program has demonstrated positive outcomes for older adults as well as children.
  • Older adults achieve a sense of fulfillment by interacting with children and passing on life experiences and skills.
  • Social model day programs are less expensive than medical model day programs.
  • We are one third the cost of in-home care.
