Mayor to launch National Adult Day Services Week at Abundant Living

Salisbury Mayor Susan Kluttz will visit Abundant Living Adult Day Care Monday to launch a weeklong celebration of National Adult Day Services Week.
Kluttz will be at the center at 1:30 p.m. to present a proclamation honoring Abundant Living participants and caregivers.
As part of the celebration, activities are planned for each day of the week: Tuesday, music by country and western singer Larry Chastain at 10 a.m.; Wednesday, a performance by D.C. and the Chosen Few at 1 p.m.; Thursday, a reception for the artists and families involved in “The Faces of Abundant Living-2008” at 2 p.m.; and on Friday, a cookout on the center’s patio featuring music by Carol “Smiley” Tysinger.
The theme of this year’s observance is “Creativity and Innovation: Moving Adult Day Services Forward.”
Barbara Garwood, executive director of Abundant Living, said, “Our program, just one of more than 3,400 adult day service programs operating in the United States, creates new possibilities for the community.”
Adult day service programs can significantly improve the lives of older or disabled adults by enabling them to remain at home with caregiver support and preventing or postponing the need for residential placement.
Abundant Living opened in its new location at 1416-A South Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. (between Rufty-Holmes Senior Center and Klumac Road) in November 2007.
Now, in addition to providing nursing care and medical monitoring, the program offers speech, occupational and physical therapy; a secure outdoor courtyard; barber and beauty shop; and enhanced personal care services.
To learn more about Abundant Living, visit its Web site at www.aladc.net or call 704-637-3940. Abundant Living is an affiliate of Lutheran Services for the Aging and a United Way agency.
