We are excited to announce that we are currently working on plans to reopen our adult day care in late 2022. We do not yet have an exact reopening date. We will be starting small and growing our program over time. We are currently in the process of working with our various funding sources, and we will also be reaching out to previous clients. In anticipation of the need, a waiting list will be developed that will allow us to add clients as staffing permits. For questions, please leave a message and someone will return your call within 2 to 3 business days. You may also call the Medical Care Facility at 269-962-5458 and ask for Mary Frisby, Adult Day Care Director. For employment opportunities, please call 269-962-5458 and ask for Human Resources.
Marian E. Burch Adult Day Care
The Marian E. Burch Adult Day Care Center was built in 1992. The 16,000 square foot handicapped accessible building has a daily capacity of 75 clients per day. The Center is located in Battle Creek but is able to provide services to any area individuals in Calhoun County.
During the day, the participant will engage in a wide variety of activities plus, physical, speech, and occupational therapies if needed. A noon meal and morning and afternoon snacks are provided. Personal care services are an important feature at the Center. The Center is able to handle skilled care clients who have special needs such as tube feedings and necessary injections. The Center provides transportation to and from the Center. All of these services allow for the client to have multiple needs met during his or her visit to the Center.
Socialization and recreational activities include, but are not limited to: pet therapy; basic exercises; outings; arts and crafts; gardening; table games; cooking club; bingo; Bible study; crochet and knitting club; entertainment; cards; bowling and Karaoke.
Our Adult Day Care program offers many advantages including:
- Helping to enhance the highest quality of life while keeping the client at home
- Increasing the productivity of the caregiver at home and at work
- Facilitating discharge from acute care settings
- Improving or maximizing the client’s mental functioning
- Encourages the development and maintenance of healthy nutritional habits
- Reduces health care costs for the client and the caregiver
- Improves the client’s psycho-social skills
- Eliminates barriers that hamper the management of personal care
- Delays the need to enter a nursing home
- Improves compliance with medical management
- Helps keep individuals physically and mentally active through exercise and music
- Provides conferences with caregivers
Restorative therapy is available while the client is attending the Center. Restorative therapy is a program that is designed to help the clients maintain their level of functioning while working toward their maximum potential through safe exercises.
Physical, speech-language pathology, and occupational therapy are skilled therapies that are performed safely and effectively under the general supervision of a skilled therapist. To be covered by Medicare Part B, the skilled service must be reasonable and necessary to the treatment of the patient’s illness or injury. To obtain skilled therapy while at the Center, the caregiver must obtain an order from the client’s primary care physician and complete the necessary paperwork at the Center.
