Caring for an aging loved one. It can be one of the toughest challenges a person will face in their lifetime. Many people become caregivers out of their love and commitment but often find out that this 24/7 responsibility is more physically and emotionally draining than they expected. Jane’s Place Adult Day Services at the Center For Active Seniors, Inc. (CASI) is here to help family members and caregivers mange this life-altering situation and provide peace of mind while giving quality and compassionate care and companionship for older adults who need assistance during the day.
CASI operates the only adult day care facility in Eastern Iowa serving adults with early onset dementia, seniors with specific physical needs and seniors who enjoy a daily routine filled with physical and cognitive activities and social interaction. Jane’s Place also provides caregivers with much needed respite and allows caregivers to continue to work.
