Effective July 1, Seniors’ Resource Center (SRC) has entered into a Management Service Agreement with NextFifty Initiative to operate the Johnson Adult Day Program (JADP) in Englewood. SRC is a local non-profit that has been operating home and community based services for nearly 40 years. JADP has been operating for over 25 years and offers day and respite to older adults, in a similar setting to SRC’s Adult Day & Respite services.
The JADP team has worked diligently to find the right partner to provide high quality services to seniors. SRC’s expertise in dementia care aligns well with JADP. SRC provides a number of services that enable individuals to continue to live in their homes or with loved ones: in home care, transportation, care management, a chores (deep cleaning) program, as well as three Adult Day programs. Adult Day programs give family caregivers a respite and provide participants with social, physical and mental stimulation.
“SRC will be responsible for the day to day operation including transportation, administration, food service, and programming,” said John Zabawa, SRC President & CEO. “Our goal is to continue providing the services participants have come to expect, while also bringing our passion and expertise and expanding services that are needed.”
“The Johnson Adult Day Program is truly delighted to partner with Seniors’ Resource Center for the provision of Adult Day Services,” said Margaret Franckhauser, R.N., CEO of NextFifty Initiative. “SRC has a stellar reputation and has demonstrated a deep commitment to the elder community of Colorado. This collaboration will assure exceptional service to older adults for many years to come.”
The partnership is an opportunity to bring together the best of two programs and take advantage of economies of scale. “Johnson is a great program with a rich history and experienced staff,” said Tia Sauceda, Director SRC Adult Day & Respite – and former JADP Executive Director. “Combining our common strengths and best practices will benefit the entire community served by JADP.”
