At MultiCare’s Adult Day Health Center, we provide quality patient care in a safe and secure environment by our competent and compassionate team. Here is a summary of our interdisciplinary services.
Our management team creates the overall direction for the department and oversees the day-to-day execution.
Jane Hanson, Supervisor
Front Office: 253-459-7222
Our friendly and helpful Front Office staff can assist you and answer your questions.
Our nursing staff consists of registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN) and program aides. Our nursing staff is available to answer any questions about the care participants receive at Adult Day Health and to help with any recent changes or updates to participants' health care provider(s). We also encourage participants to become educated about their health.
Our therapists work with participants who have experienced an injury, illness or physical disability that has caused a loss of function. Our therapists may work with participants on sensory-motor issues, self-care, strengthening, hand function, endurance or functional mobility. Participants will participate in therapy activities daily, either in a group or individually, depending on their needs, with an Occupational Therapist, OT Assistant, exercise specialist, or program aide.
Our social worker is trained to help patients and family members cope with social and emotional problems related to changes in health. Our social worker provides supportive counseling, crisis intervention, referral to community resources and assessment of social and emotional problems. The social worker works closely with other members of our team.
Participants and family members may request consultation from our social worker at any time. Please call the main number 253-459-7222 for more information.
Every participant in the Adult Day Health program has a case manager. The case manager is the leader of the participant's health care team. This case manager may be a nurse, social worker, or occupational therapist. If you don’t know the name of the case manager assigned to you or your family member, please call 253-459-7222.
A nourishing and well-balanced meal is provided during each program. Our cooks work in conjunction with the nursing staff to create menus that meet individual meal restrictions. Staff provide assistance for those who are in need. Participants who prefer are welcome to bring a meal from home.
Adult Day Health's energetic, supportive atmosphere is punctuated by activities in which everyone can participate, regardless of individual limitations. Activities are designed to be both therapeutic and enjoyable.
