However, he soon realized many seniors are moving back in with their families, which can be an emotional and financial burden. From dementia to Alzheimer’s or just being too much to take care of, Abel knew there was a perfect way to assist families who had elderly relatives living with them.
The Adult Daycare Center on East 5th Street in Brooklyn opened in in January. While most adult daycare centers have one huge room with a banquet style hall, Abel said he wanted to offer something more.
“I wanted it to be where the clients could come and have privacy,” he said.
The facility has a welcoming ambiance and rooms with comfy chairs and couches. One room even has a pool table.
In addition to offering more privacy, the facility also allows seniors who suffer from dementia and can’t sleep the option of coming at night. Instead of putting their mom or dad in a nursing home or assisted living, this is a much friendlier option.
“I wanted to be in the game next year because the market is changing,” he said. “Medicare and Medicaid are pushing clients to come to locations like this.”
