Primrose is an innovative social enterprise providing short or long term day care to the elderly and respite to the carers. Primrose aims to avoid the difficulties and problems faced, when caring for elderly relatives, so that all can continue to enjoy a home life amongst family.
Primrose provides adult day care for the elderly and any other adult that feels they need extra support or social interaction; meals and refreshments are provide and transportation can be arranged.
If you are a full-time caregiver, Primrose can provide a much needed break. While the person with Alzheimer’s is at Primrose, you’ll have time to rest, run errands or finish other tasks. If you find yourself feeling guilty, ask yourself this, “If I wear myself out to the point of total exhaustion, what good will I be to the person with dementia?”
If you are a caregiver that works during the day, Primrose can be very helpful as you try to balance a job with caregiving duties. Hours of service vary at Primrose and can be individually tailored to suit caregiver needs.
For people with Alzheimer’s and dementia, Primrose provides a chance to be social and to participate in staffed activities such as music and exercise programs. Keep in mind that the person with dementia will need time to adjust to the experience of going to Primrose. Some people may resist going at first, but they often look forward to the visit after several weeks of attending, meeting people and joining in activities.
