My hope is to make it an increasingly valuable resource, not just to those in our community who are dealing with dementia but also those who so lovingly and faithfully administer care.
Fallbrook, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2016
In many communities across the country, seniors and disabled individuals represent underserved populations. Foundation for Senior Care is continually trying to change that. This non-profit organization offers a number of programs for aging adults in the form of senior advocacy and transportation services. At the cornerstone of these services is a well-attended adult day care program, which provides safety, socialization and stimulation to seniors and disabled individuals, while also allowing caregivers some time to themselves, guilt-free. Foundation for Senior Care has announced an exciting new hire—Susan Crivello, who will serve as Administrator for the Adult Day Care program.
A seasoned nursing professional with both her BSN and RN designations, Crivello formally started with Foundation for Senior Care in March of this year. She graduated from Biola University in 1982, and has diverse nursing experience in hospital settings, home health, pharmaceutical sales, adult day care and hospice care, and even pain management. At Hospice of the Valleys, she spent more than 10 years as a case manager and medical liaison.
“Education on dementia is very important for both the family and the caregiver. We are dedicated to providing programs that provide families with the support they need,” Rachel Mason, Executive Director said. “Susan’s passion for respite care and firsthand experience makes her a great addition to our team.”
Crivello is intimately familiar with Adult Day Care, having a close family member with dementia who greatly benefited from participation in an Adult Day Care program. Crivello witnessed her loved one thrive during the last years of life, enlivened by the daily socialization and activity.
“I am compassionate toward those who have taken up the honorable role of the caregiver. I know first-hand that a caregiver needs to ask for help. The Adult Day Care program provides this,” Crivello said. “My hope is to make it an increasingly valuable resource, not just to those in our community who are dealing with dementia but also those who so lovingly and faithfully administer care.”
Foundation for Senior Care, day care program, referred to as The Club, is available to community members Monday through Friday, from 9 until 5. The cost is $70 per day. Activities and snacks are provided, and transportation services are available. If interested in learning more about the Adult Day Care program, please contact Susan Crivello at theclub(at)foundationforseniorcare(dot)org or 760-723-7570.
