The struggle to balance work and family life is ongoing for families of aging adults --- even more so for those who speak English as a second language. Adult day care programs are often the answer, and a local group is providing long-term medical care and supervision for senior adults in a multilingual setting. Access Care Adult Health Day Center in St. Matthews provides a second home for those in need of culturally competent adult day care programs for seniors who’ve immigrated to the United States and who are more comfortable speaking Spanish, Russian, Nepalese and a number of Asian languages.
Access is located at 908 Dupont Road Louisville, KY, within close proximity to several hospitals and offering medical care and social activities. Anne Doyle visited Access to explore how they create a sense of community with bilingual staff and cultural diversity.
