Starting an adult day care center is a business which gives senior citizens an advantage over other types of retirement options because it allows them to stay at home longer. When the new health care laws come into effect it will cut $500 Billion in Medicare benefits. The costs of an adult day care center are supported by medicaid and private pay clients. Senior care centers offers people an option to live at home and still be a vital part of their family. Starting an adult day care center allows people from the ages of 18 and up who have trouble with everyday activities such as bathing, toileting, dressing or are socially isolated to have a place to come to everyday which helps them live a life with independence as well as with the necessary aid they might require due to age or an accident.A part of the adult population which has been overlooked are the mentally challenged who now have aging parents taking care of them. The parents need a break and their children could benefit by the socialization and the physical and psychological care given to them by professionals. This population can be taken by an adult day care center but mostly states require a training program for these individuals to be working members of the community and learn a trade. However, if they are severely mentally or physically impaired an adult day care center would be a place where they could receive the attention and activity they need, provided they are private pay clients or are receiving medicaid benefits.Starting and owning this type of business is also an advantage to a person looking to be in the health care field with regular hours. Many centers start at 7am and clients board vans and buses by 4:30pm for home. Its rewarding to be able to take care of clients psychological and physical needs, socialize with each other, and be an asset to the community. As owners run good businesses, word of mouth takes over and people come to your center. The advertising is very easy once you begin your center. the clients tell their friends and the families tell each other and soon its a thriving center full of life.In conclusion, starting and owning an adult day care is a good business investment with government funding, is good for them community and provides an option to assisted living, nursing homes and other health related institutions.

There are many issues involved in dealing with Asperger’s syndrome in adults that you would not necessarily have with other adult children. The issue of readiness to live alone at 18 or 21 is one of them.Many young adults without neurological disabilities are also living with their parents after graduating college or high school as well. The press has even given them the name “boomerang kids.” Still, living with your adult Asperger’s child does have its special challenges. So how do you make sure it works for both of you?1. Set Clear BoundariesTo start with, you need to set clear boundaries and rules as to the living situation, and what will be expected of all people in the household. This is a good idea no matter whom you are living with. But if you are dealing with an adult child with Asperger’s syndrome this has extra importance. Why? Because these adults crave clarity and direction. They completely flounder without it. They do not have the ability to read between the lines and understand what is expected of them. You have to spell it out.2. Make Rules ClearYou can save yourself a lot of resentment in the future by making these rules clear ahead of time. Do you want your adult child to help with the chores around the house? Pay rent? Come home by a certain time of night? Limit the amount of people they have over? Then tell them in very explicit terms.Never assume “Oh, a reasonable person would know to put the dishes away without being told” or “Anyone would know it’s impolite to have friends over after 11pm” or whatever it may be — and then get mad at your child when they break these invisible rules!Common sense is not a strength of a person with Asperger’s syndrome. Mostly, they march according to their logic, which makes perfect sense to them. But if you explain to them why you want something a done a certain way or why a certain thing is important to you, then they are perfectly capable of, and usually even eager to, follow the rules.3. Pay attention to Emotional Maturity, Anxiety and Level of DetailIt can be a hard transition for anyone who is leaving the relatively sheltered world of education to whatever comes next. When dealing with Asperger’s syndrome in adults, though, going from a structured existence where there were clear goals and ways to accomplish them to an aimless existence in which none of this exists can be very hard. You also have to remember that emotional maturity levels of this age group will be behind typical kids, due to the nature of developmental disabilities.The Experience of a Young WomanOne young woman reveals the following about her experiences living with her parents after college.When I lived at my parents’ house after college, I was an extremely frustrated person. I had absolutely nothing to do with my time, and no way to get out of the house except for perhaps once a week. I didn’t drive, and we lived far from town. I had no control over my life whatsoever.I would go to my parents for sympathy but they’d just get mad at me. They would go out for dinner, and I’d spend the whole evening resenting that they were able to leave the house and I wasn’t.When they’d come home late at night, they’d ask me why I hadn’t done the dishes or some other chore, and I’d explode at them about how lucky they were and get mad at them for asking me to help.It is clear that I had very little emotional maturity at that time. I was drowning in self-pity and didn’t even realize it, and it made me a pretty selfish person at that time in my life. I had no way to feel like I had any control over my life, so had no way to get out of it.I should have been grateful for a place to stay and helped out around the house in return, but no one had made it clear to me that this was what I was expected to do. And I was so deep in my own feelings of remorse for the life I wanted to have that I couldn’t see it.What Would Help This SituationIn retrospect, there are a few things that would have made this situation better. When she came home from college, there should have been an in depth, very detailed explanation of “We’re glad to help you out for a little bit and let you stay here, but we expect some things in return. We know the (circumstances of your life that brought you to this place) are very hard, but we still need you to help out.” Then list the specific chores she would be responsible for, or at least the specific things she should make a point to look for to see if they needed to be done. Make a chart. Make it visual, make it stick, and most of all, do it at a time when no one is defensive and it’s being done out of love rather than resentment.The Method of Communication Matters for Adults with Asperger’s syndromeTelling someone to do something in a tone of voice that implies you are angry at them will not have the effect you want when dealing with Asperger’s syndrome in adults. Adults with Asperger’s syndrome are very sensitive to emotion, despite not always being able to display it.They will pick up on the anger in your tone and be so overwhelmed by it that they will not be able to process what you are saying. The anger is scary to them and makes them go into “survival mode” or at least get very defensive. This takes all their mental energy, and they will totally not remember what you are saying.Therefore, the mistake will be repeated again and again and again until tensions escalate to unbearable levels. Each party is just trying to do what seems right to them, but both parties fail to see that a lack of proper communication is causing all this resentment. It matters how you communicate.Be Aware of Each Other’s Emotions, and Pay Attention to DetailThe level of detail also matters. Telling your adult child to “help around the house more” is a very ambiguous statement. Adults with Asperger’s syndrome do not do well with ambiguous statements. Telling them “You should know to do this without us asking” is not helpful either. The feelings of guilt and inadequacy that it creates gets in the way of any helpful message getting across. If they knew to do it, they would be doing it. Most adults with Asperger’s syndrome are eager to please.Be specific on what chores you want done when, how many friends is a “few,” what time “by night” means, or any other ambiguous statement. You may think “They’re so smart, they should know this stuff,” but remember, adults with Asperger’s syndrome have uneven abilities. They seem very smart in some areas, but can be quite clueless in others.In most cases, it is not a case of laziness. It’s a case of having no idea what one is supposed to do, or having too much emotional baggage or anxiety to pay attention to anything but the thoughts in their head. In either case, specific direction can work wonders.
