Encore Community Caregiver Support Group
Encore Adult Day Services provides a monthly support group to address the issues caregivers face because their loved ones have health concerns, including memory loss. This is a great opportunity to meet and talk with other caregivers and Encore staff to gain insight, resources and support! The group meets from 5-6:30 p.m. the second Monday of every month (except December) at the Encore Adult Day Services Program, 609 W. First St., Waconia. For more information, call (952) 442-7660.
The Encore Program staff consists of a team of five trained, caring professionals with many years of experience working with older adults and disabled adults. The staff includes a therapeutic recreation specialist, a social worker, and three program assistants. The Encore Program utilizes the services of a Carver County Public Health Nurse to meet our nursing needs and contracts with a local home care agency for the services of a Physical Therapist.
The Encore Program receives reimbursement through a variety of funding options including private pay arrangements, a sliding fee scale, Medical Assistance Waiver programs, long-term care insurance and the Veterans Administration.
