Ladysmith Adult Day Services originated in 2016. Beth Peterson, Owner/ Director has 15 + years’ experience as a Director in the Adult Day Services business, winning a National Award for “Most Outstanding Adult Day Services Program” while working for Grace Lutheran Foundation. The concept for Adult Day Services was recognized in the 1940’s. with many variations throughout the years. Adult Day Services Week was officially recognized by Congress and proclaimed by the President in the 1980’s. NADSA (National Adult Day Services Association) provides excellent Historical Highlights on their web site.
Ladysmith ADS provides services to those individuals needing assistance throughout their daily routine. This includes medication management, activities, diet specific prepared lunch, healthy am & pm snacks, micro spa services, brain fitness, music/ pet therapy, exercise and movement, guest speakers, community outings, etc.
At Ladysmith Adult Day Services, we are experienced and compassionate. We care for a wide variety of diagnosis and situations, through skilled professional caregivers and R.N. consultation. We are currently open Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We honor a variety of funding/ contract sources including V.A., Managed Care Organizations, private insurance, private pay, and private insurance.
On the continuum of care, Adult Day Services is an option for individuals who are not quite ready for Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Care. We all strive to keep our independence. Adult Day programming supports and understands this need. Additionally, we work with individuals who may function otherwise including those with autism, developmental/cognitive issues, and socialization needs. We work closely with the area high schools as students transition out of the school system. Creative Vocational Discovery tools help us to “think outside the box” for individuals not interested in supportive or competitive employment. Mini entrepreneurship is even considered for some individuals. Our goal is your goal and assisting you to experience feelings of success, happiness and life-long resources.
We offer volunteer opportunities, student internships and field experience. Our current project we are trying to fund is beautification of the fenced in area next to the building.
The pre-assessment process includes a brief face to face meeting with the interested person(s). Upon completion of the admission paperwork, an individual can attend Ladysmith ADS 1 hour a month or 8 hours, 5 days per week. We offer flexibility!
