The City of Miramar opened its NEW South Central/South East Focal Point (SCSEFP) Adult Day Care Center, at 8915 Miramar Parkway, Miramar, FL 33025, on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 10 a.m. It stands as a prominent 3,800-square foot one-story building; where the city will elevate care in the community. It boasts features that include a covered drop-off area, secured reception area and staff offices.
The facility provides attendees with social, therapeutic, group and individual activities; physical exercise; meals and snacks; caregiver respite; support groups; information and referral Services all within close proximity to emergency rescue should a medical emergency arise.
The City’s development of this type of facility recognizes a population that is living longer, adults who have special needs, and family caregivers who are still in the work force in need of a respite during their day. City of Miramar Commissioner Yvette Colbourne who believed heavily in its development stated, “I championed the new Adult Day Care Center as one of my top priorities to provide services to the most vulnerable in the Community, our seniors as well as our children.”
“This adult day care facility will allow for us to provide the much needed continuum of care which will afford our residents the ability to age in a place within their own Miramar community with the dignity and respect they deserve,” says Marva Ricketts, Director of Social Services for the City of Miramar.
When considering Adult Day Care Services, clients must be 18 and over and be assessed by the City’s Social Services Department. To schedule an appointment for an intake assessment or obtain more information, please call (954) 883.5220.
