FULTON – In conjunction with Catholic Charities of Oswego County, The Cornerstone Club in Fulton will host an open house for the community at their recently renovated location at 808 W. Broadway (State Route 3).
The open house will take place November 9 from 3 to 5 p.m.
All are welcome to tour the program and speak with staff.
Refreshments will be provided.
Developed by St. Luke Health Services, The Cornerstone Club Social Adult Day Program offers members a comfortable place to socialize and take part in activities with staff available to provide supervision, health and nutrition monitoring, and assistance with personal care needs, all in a safe location that is easily accessible.
“We look forward to welcoming anyone who is interested in learning more about us and what this new program offers our community,” said program director Nicole Greenier. “For caregivers, our program represents a valuable resource; as a safe place to bring their loved one with a structured program and a flexible schedule that promotes social interactions, helping to enhance quality of life.”
Those benefiting from the program may be experiencing limitations due to a functional impairment such as a stroke, or cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related illnesses.
The club’s professional staff can provide personal care to members that includes hands-on assistance with mobility, eating, medication supervision and other activities of daily living.
A nutritious lunch and snacks are included each day.
Club members can arrive as early as 7:30 a.m. and stay until closing time at 5:30 p.m. weekdays.
Attendance options are flexible; members will be able to attend the program based on their preferences, either in full-day or half-day increments.
Members can arrange for their own transportation or program staff can help arrange for transportation services as needed.
Enrollment can be for paid privately, through Managed Long Term Care Plans, or other local programs. Rates are based on full or half-day visits.
A grant from the Richard S. Shineman Foundation assisted The Cornerstone Club in equipping the new program, making for a comfortable and engaging space for those attending.
The program is currently enrolling participants.
Those interested in arranging a personal tour or who have questions can contact Greenier, at 315-592-2001.
