Caring for an individual with physical or cognitive disabilities often requires caregivers to quit their jobs or enlist the assistance of institutional care. Adult day services can delay or eliminate the need to place loved ones in a full-time facility. Share the Care specializes in adult daycare, providing support and services to supplement care from family members.
Share the Care's five adult daycare centers provide activities within a safe, friendly environment for physically and cognitively impaired adults, including those with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease. Enrollees can stay at the center for anywhere from a few hours to the entire workday, and each center is staffed with on-site nurses and experienced care providers to ensure safety. To help improve the mental and physical health of its clients, Share the Care would like to incorporate the Xbox 360 with Kinect into their daily activities. Since it tracks body movements and does not require a controller, the Xbox 360 with Kinect can encourage mental and physical activity among aging or disabled adults. The system supports a variety of games that aim to improve balance and coordination through physical activity, which may also aid in decreasing symptoms of depression and loneliness.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Share the Care provide enriching activities for adults with physical and mental challenges. If G-Team members raise $300, then Share the Care can purchase an Xbox 360 with Kinect for one of its adult daycare centers. Each additional donation will go toward the purchase of an Xbox 360 with Kinect for another care center.
