Here are a few testimonies from the clients of our Adult Day Health Services program in Honolulu.
"We are so grateful to the Salvation Army ADHS, where our mother has been in attendance since suffering a stroke in October of 2001. She has made remarkable progress overall, and despite several medical issues over the years, she has always bounced back. With each setback, motivating her to improve, was being able to return to enjoy the daily activities with her friends at the Center. The Center has provided her with comprehensive support including medical monitoring, social/emotional support, cognitive stimulation, recreational activities, as well as a various forms of entertainment. We are convinced that participating at the Center has helped to extend and improve her quality of life! Moreover, knowing she is happy and safe there, brings comfort and much needed respite to the family. We can't say enough about the staff, who are knowledgeable in working with elderly clients. They are understanding, caring, nurturing, and provide encouragement and support to both the clients and their families. We are so happy that our mother looks forward to each day she gets to attend the Salvation Army ADHS Center!"J. Chun
"Its been a year since my Mom started to attend ADHS and we really are grateful and thankful for such a kind and caring staff. Everyone is so helpful and nice. My mother enjoys the days spent at the center. My sister and I can be confident that she is well cared for and that is a great help to us as far as not having to worry because she is in such good hands. I know my mom enjoys the range of activities and making friends with the other attendees. Its such a treat for us when she brings home things that she has made- we love the flower arrangements (Ikebana) that adorn our kitchen table and we use the many home made note cards taught by "Paper Crafts by Sally". Special Holidays are also celebrated and even birthdays goodies from other families are enjoyed by my Mom. My Mom also enjoys the entertainment (signing and dancing) provided by various groups. I believe by attending ADHS my Mom's quality of life ( physically and mentally) has been enriched by the wide range of activities the center has offered. A Big Mahalo to ADHS staff. We hope Mom will enjoy many more years at the center !"G. Inayoshi
