HIGHLIGHTS:

On September 14 members of CESI's team traveled to the State House to meet with Governor Baker's team. We received a formal proclamation noting our 40 years of service, and the importance of Adult Day Services Week. The proclamation reads:

  • Whereas, One in ten people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s dementia nationally, with projected number for Massachusetts at 130,000, and
  • Whereas, This number is projected to increase by 25% by 2025; and
  • Whereas, a significant number of people living with dementia are comorbid with other health issues, such as diabetes or stroke; and
  • Whereas, Seniors suffering from social isolation are more susceptible to illness and have a higher mortality rate than their peers who benefit from regular social interaction; and
  • Whereas, Seniors using adult day health programs spend on average $10,000 less each year on community-based long-term care costs; and
  • Whereas, Adult day health programs save the state of Massachusetts over $56,000 per person each year, compared to the cost of nursing home care; and
  • Whereas, Cooperative Elder Services, Inc., a nonprofit celebrating 40 years, serves over 50 communities in Massachusetts, totaling more than 300 participants and their caregivers; and
  • Whereas, Cooperative Elder Services, Inc., serves predominately low-income seniors and adults; 80% of participants live with some form of dementia, and 75% with multiple chronic conditions,
  • Now, Therefore, I, Charles D. Baker, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, do hereby proclaim September 16 to 22 to be National Adult Day Services Week.
