Largo, FL (PRWEB) April 23, 2010
It has been 11 years since Michael and Kory Stoeckle became involved in senior assisted living. They were looking for a special niche in terms of senior housing, something more personal than large corporate assisted living facilities but, at the same time, more substantial than the converted homes offered by “Mom and Pop” operations.
That's how Sweet Water at Largo was born. Since then, the facility has expanded its services to include Day Care Services for Seniors, but its goal of quality and caring remain the same.
"We looked at large corporate type facilities that offered a lot of amenities but seemed cold, and offered a less personal experience for the residents and their families," Michael said.
But the senior living alternatives were often small, expanded homes that were personable, but sometimes poorly run and not in compliance with state standards.
Michael, who calls himself as "the business guy" and his wife -- whose involvement he describes as "a calling"-- came up with a "perfect size" that takes the best from both worlds to create what they deem "Excellence in Senior Care" for their residents.
It's a formula that works, and that's why they have expanded their reach to the Tampa Bay area by offering Day Care Services for Seniors at the Sweet Water assisted living facility, 11290 Walsingham Rd., Largo, FL 33778.
The senior services offered include:
- Excellent adult daycare during their stay.
- Engaging activities to stimulate their minds and bodies.
- Up to three nutritious meals per day.
- Medication supervision to ensure medications are taken at proper times and in proper doses.
- All day or partial day availability.
- Overnight stays when convenient (space permitting).
- Affordable adult daycare pricing.
- Convenient drop-off and pick-up times.
So, anyone in the Tampa Bay area looking for an adult daycare center -- whether it's for a one-time visit or on an ongoing basis -- can rely on the professionals at Sweet Water at Largo to help
That means loved ones get the right dose of medicine at the proper time as well as nutritious and tasty meals from a menu created, designed and approved by licensed dietitians. But perhaps, just as important, the social activities offered at Sweet Water can help restore a sense of engagement and alertness to seniors who have relied on television as a companion. That restoration of social engagement can have an impact on behavior and self-esteem, experts say.
In addition, if the time comes when it's appropriate to move into an assisted living facility long-term, the periodic visits to Sweet Water's Senior Day Care help make the transition easier.
