Macomb County Adult Day Center set to reveal a new name and new look at its grand reopening event
Macomb Community Action, in partnership with the Martha T. Berry Medical Care Facility, are excited to invite Macomb County residents to the grand reopening of the Macomb County Adult Day Center.
The free open house will take place on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 21885 Dunham Road, Clinton Township, from 4 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. The event will showcase a number of updates to the center, while rolling out its new logo and name, the GoldenBerry Adult Day Caring Center.
To help improve the home-style environment that the center promotes, a renovation project took place between July and November 2017. These renovations provided changes such as shower area improvements, new bedroom furnishings, new appliances and much more. Funding for the renovations were made possible by the Area Agency on Aging 1-B and the Macomb County government.
"I'm very excited about our memory care focused remodeling at the center!" said Jane Yanez, supervisor of Resident/Client Services at the GoldenBerry Adult Day Caring Center. "The calming paint colors, new furniture and new equipment for our evidence-based activities create a positive experience for our participants and their families."
The Macomb County Adult Day Center opened its doors to clients in 1984. The center provides programs of both social and medical models geared at allowing those with physical and cognitive disabilities to remain in a comfortable environment during the day. The center is a cost-effective alternative to other forms of health care such as at home health and home nursing care.
"Our Adult Day Caring Center demonstrates great collaboration from Macomb County, Macomb Community Action, the Area Agency on Aging 1-B, the Veteran's Administration and Martha T. Berry. All of us working together to provide services to our valued seniors," said Kevin W. Evans, executive director of the Martha T. Berry Medical Care Facility.
