Thank you for the opportunity and privilege to introduce the services offered by Life’s Essence Adult Day Services, Inc. – L.E.A.D.S. We are a non-profit organization established in 2015 and we pride ourselves as one of the newest LTC options for the community. We are an Adult Day Care Center (ADCC) located in the Arlington area of Jacksonville, FL. We offer quality day care services for adults 18 and older who may not qualify for Home Health Agency (HHA), Assisted Living Facility (ALF) or Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) services due to cost, not impaired enough to require 24-hour services, or aren’t safe home alone.
Our Center is licensed by the Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA). We also specialize in care for persons with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The Center Director has 18 years of nursing experience with most of her experience in Geriatrics. We anticipate receiving our Medicaid Provider Number (MPN) within the next 30-60 days. Our facility provides a safe, nurturing environment, 2 hot nutritious meals (breakfast/lunch), afternoon snacks, social and therapeutic activities tailored to the individual’s level of capability. We provide a staffing ratio of 1:4; this permits the ability to offer personalized care.
We recognize the increasing physical and mental demands placed on Primary Caregivers (PCG) while caring for an aging parent, chronically ill child, sibling, or spouse. Amid life’s demands, the PCG tends to forget or push aside their own physical and mental health. We are here to meet the basic needs of the PCG and family member, by providing an alternative to HHA, ALF, and SNF placement. L.E.A.D.S is an incredible alternative LTC option compared to institutionalized settings. Our mission is to provide optimum care, cost-effective services, individualized care plans to PCG, families, and the community. This promotes the ability for the PCG to balance their daily life, while allowing them to promote their own mental and physical health.
L.E.A.D.S accept referrals from physicians, social workers, hospitals, nursing homes, insurance companies, caregivers, family, friends, as well as self-referrals. Referrals can be submitted by contacting us at 904-503-2244. You can also fax referrals to 904-503-2284 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Accepted referrals are admitted to our services Monday-Friday.
We look forward to working with you to meet the needs of each PCG, participant, patient, and the community. We would love the opportunity to meet with you and your colleagues in person to answer any questions or provide additional information. Our next scheduled Open House is Saturday, January 20, 2018, from 10am to 2pm. Please join us!
