About six months ago we started looking for a day care program for our sister. She has some medical problems which have contributed to her forgetfulness and memory loss. A need for a place to go a couple times a week and to be able to interact with others in a safe and caring environment was a must.
Then we found Jaime's ADC! Not only did it meet our sister's needs, it exceeded our expectations. She has been attending twice a week for about five months now and she absolutely loves it. She is met with smiling faces who are happy to see her and she enjoys a full day of structured and fun activities.
Who knew she would love 'Chair Zumba' and 'Table Talk' and an array of musical activities as well as visits from a special dog and a miniature pony!
Out thanks to Jaime and her wonderful staff!

Jaime's Adult Center has proved to be a real godsend for my family. We want to keep my mother, who is in her nineties, in her home for as long as possible. In-home agencies weren't the answer for us, but Jaime's Center definitely is. My mom needed social interaction with other people her own age. She loves Jaime's Center because of all the various and thoughtful activities that are provided - whether it is chair Zumba and chair yoga or entertaining trivia games and outings. My mother also raves about the food prepared by Jaime's devoted staff. They greet mom with a smile, a kiss and a hug and my mother comes home excited, chatting and truly engaged.
I've noticed a real positive difference in her. Her mind is sharper and she is more energetic. I owe it all to Jaime's Adult Day Center.

Jaime is a caring, well-trained nurse, who is also very creative and compassionate. When I took my mother there, I was very impressed with the services they offered. It is a wonderful adult day care center, that I highly recommend.

My mother has been going to Jaime's since last September. It's hard to leave a loved one in someone else's care, you always want to make sure that they are taken care of. However, there has never been a doubt in my mind that my mother is where she is supposed to be, surrounded by people who understand her needs, treat her with dignity and respect, and love her unconditionally.
Jaime and her staff truly care about my mom, they engage her as much as possible and they are attentive to her needs. I tell Jaime she is my angel because she is just so great with my mom even though sometimes it is very challenging. I am truly blessed to have found Jaime's Adult Day Center.

Choosing to care for loved ones at home has become increasingly popular over the years, but it is not as easy as some people may think. I work in a private home setting and have had the privilege of providing professional care for Wynne, an eighty-one year old female diagnosed with vascular dementia related to a fall four years ago. The spouse chose to keep Wynne at home and acted as her primary caregiver for the first year. Eventually, this became a difficult task physically and mentally and he sought outside help. Although he had reservations about Wynne's acceptance of going to an Adult Day Center, they gave it a try on a part-time basis.
Within a few weeks, Wynne showed a strong desire to attend and transitioned to full-time. I recently had the opportunity to inform Wynne's primary care physician of the profound impact Jaime's services have had. When the doctor asked Wynne if she was happy she replied "Yes!" without hesitation. Instead of lying on a couch watching TV without any distractions, Wynne is now looking forward to attending Jaime's Adult Day Care.
According to Wynne, she is going to "see all of the beautiful people who love her". The staff greet her every morning with such warmth and compassion, it's no wonder she looks forward to attending. Wynne participates in all the daily activities and the stimulation has proven to be of benefit. She is able to recall certain events from the day and has a new found love for music. Her afternoon medications are administered and the staff is consistent with reporting any concerns they observe.
It is very obvious that both owners (sisters) and professional staff have a gifted devotion for what they do. Anyone who would be reluctant to place their loved ones here can put all those speculations behind them. Wynn's spouse, who was also once hesitant, is grateful for his wife's quality of life today!
We give thanks to Jaime's Adult Day Care Services and truly admirable staff for contributing to Wynne's new and improved daily journey.

My immediate impression of Jaime's Adult Day Center was that it is comfortable, friendly and engaging. The thoughtful, home-like touches make it feel like we were in someone's own comfortable home. The staff was thorough and extremely friendly and they are able to make amazing connections with the members. The activities available for the members are very engaging and fun. It was so great to see them getting involved, active, having fun and making close friends!

Jaime's ADC is a godsend! I am grateful beyond words that we found this happy place 3 months ago! My mom moved from Indiana to Florida with me about 3 years ago, away from friends, family, and her church which she loved. Here in her new home, when I had busy days, her primary activity became sitting in her chair and working crossword puzzles for hours. I was watching my beloved mom withdraw into what I felt was a worsening mental status and depression.
Then, with MUCH reluctance, she promised to "try" Jaime's for me. It wasn't long before she walked out at the end of the day with a big smile on her face and more alertness which carried over to home! Now she enjoys--looks forward to!--her days at Jaime's! She loves the people who work there, as well as interacting with other members, and she is treated like family!
She's doing exercises, artistic projects, enjoying music and SOCIALIZING! I feel that we turned back the clock and gave her additional good years, and now she "wishes they had had a place like that in Indiana"! The "free days" are a gift for me and my husband, and now I can have a fuller life also! Win/Win!

Jaime's Adult Day Center has provided a welcoming, structured and safe environment for our sister Janet, who has been diagnosed with dementia. The staff at Jaime's have proven to be very supportive of both their clients and client's families. Prior to going to Jaime's, our sister was isolated at home alone during the day while we were at work. Going to Jaime's has given Janet the opportunity to interact with people her own age and to be engaged in activities and socializing. The change in her mental awareness and happiness has become a truly positive experience for our whole family.

My mom was so apprehensive about going somewhere new but she has gained confidence and new friends along with some new smiles! Makes me so happy to see her happy!

We (The MIsfits) just performed at Jaime's Adult Day Center during activities time. We arrived just as some of the guests were coming in from gardening time. All in attendance left me with the impression they were happy to be there and were actively engaged with our performance. We can't wait to visit again!

My father-in-law enjoys his time there, staff are very welcoming and attentive to him. And I love having a break to take care of business knowing he is in a safe environment.

Jaime's Adult Day Center has made such a great and positive difference in my mom's life! In the past, she was somewhat content to be at home and watch TV all day, or sit outside on the lanai, maybe even take a short walk in the neighborhood. We had even tried other "senior centers" which she found quite boring and really didn't meet her needs. You see, my mom has dementia and has good days and bad days.
When we found Jaime's, it was like a breath of fresh air! Jaime's setting is perfect for my mom, all on one level, a great room sectioned off for different activities, no stairs, elevators or changes needed, just a simple movement from one part of the room to another to change activities.
The staff really know their stuff and Jaime's philosophy is totally geared to maintaining dignity, respect and caring for each individual who attends. I've never seen my mom so active and engaged! She has a very poor memory, so asking about her daily activities isn't possible, however, I am able to have excellent communication with Jaime for any issues that may arise.
Jaime's Adult Day Center has given me peace of mind to know that my mom is in a safe, clean, comfortable place where she is valued and cared for. I am very grateful for Jaime!

WE LOVE JAIME'S ADULT DAYCARE!
Prior to finding Jaime's we were at our wits end as to what to do with our mother who suffers from ALZ. Always being semi-active she was now unable to do activities and showed little to no interest in anything. She was becoming irritable, angry and in some cases uncontrollable. Jaime's was a LIFESAVER. She changed from resistance to going to now wanting to go everyday. Jaime and staff are welcoming, professional and easy to work with. They are able to capture the client's interest with activities, field trips and entertainment. They make each client feel special. It is obvious to me that Jaime and staff love what they do.
Mom feels safe and partakes in activities that we were unable to get her to do. She feels that she can open up completely where at home (we are learning one day at a time) we tend to want to "fix" her. I'm afraid to say that if not for Jaime's we would have had to break our promise and put my mother in a nursing home. Thank you Jaime and staff!

First of all I wanted to say how happy I am that you and your business are in my parents' lives and mine. You have been a godsend to my mom (and M too). M has a great time while he is with you, and the freedom that it allows my mom is priceless!

Jaime and staff are all extremely professional and welcoming. They are very flexible and provide a safe environment for my mother-in-law. Everyone is very compassionate. Allowing me to take my mother-in-law here gives me respite...it's a win/win! I get a break and my mother-in-law gets some social time!
