BETTER LIFE SENIOR DAYCARE
663 CHARLES ST
PROVIDENCE, RI 02904
BUSINESS PLAN 2013
This a a vision from Mario Mancebo, the director for the senior
daycare center. He feels that the senior daycare center, furthermore
referred to as The Center, is a vital resource not only for the
community, but to seniors in general. Most seniors are confined all
day to the same building and same routine. This will get them out
of that routine and break up their day. It will allow them to
socialize with their peer group and interact with and make new
friends in the process. This will make it an exciting part
of their week. Activities will range from music, arts and crafts,
baking and dancing activities as well. These are just some of
what will be offered. On top of that, a vital part of a seniors life is
making sure that their medical issues are monitored or checkups
provided. This will be offered from day one with qualified
medical personnel attending every day.
Overall I fell that this resource be made available to our seniors.
We will make sure that they are not only available, but available
in a very pleasant setting with comfortable arrangements all
The company is structured for beginning of life and approaching
end of life services and daycare. We cater to the young as a
daycare facility and after school programs for children. Working
parents have a resource for subsidized child care from 6 months
old and older. We provide all day care for these children. They are
feed breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner if needed. We also have
book reading and several play activities along with nap periods
according to age.
After school, we provide activities for these children as well. These
activities include computer learning and games, homework time
with assistance from staff members to help with any homework
questions. They are also provided arts and craft activities to keep
their mind active. As with most all children, they need some down
time. For that we provide approved movies and popcorn on certain
days. Our staff will drop off and pick up at all local schools so the
parents don’t have to worry about transportation.
As far as senior go, we have been planning this for several years.
At this time we do not have a senior day care operation, but we
have done all our homework and we are ready to move. Through
Medicaid, we can get the center subsidized for these seniors.
Medicaid will pay for most if not all of the costs if the senior is
going to a licensed center. Mario has already started the process of
licensure through the state.
Our company employees17 full time and 5 part time employees.
They consist of cooks, drivers, teachers, teaching assistants, tutors And administrative staff.
As discussed in part in the Executive Summary, we will provide a day care center for seniors. They enable seniors to socialize with others while still receiving needed care services. At the same time, they offer caregivers a break from care giving duties while knowing that their loved one is in good hands. Adult day care is a planned program of activities designed to promote well-being though social and health related services. Adult day care centers operate during daytime hours, Monday through Friday, in a safe, supportive, cheerful environment. Nutritious meals that
accommodate special diets are provided.
The needs that these centers address are;
• To provide older adults an opportunity to get out of the • house and receive both mental and social stimulation. • To give caregivers a much-needed break in which to attend to personal needs, or simply rest and relax.
For the participant, an adult day care center's benefits can be extensive: • A safe,...
