Casa Central announced the reopening of its Adult Wellness Center (AWC) last week, after an 18-month closure due to COVID-19. In preparation for the reopening, careful planning and careful consideration has been taken to ensure the continued safety and well-being of all staff and participants. Staff, visitors and participants will be required to wear face masks and respect social distancing when visiting the Center. Numerous studies have suggested that loneliness and social isolation are associated with increased blood pressure, higher cholesterol levels, depression, and decreased cognitive abilities. It’s no surprise that one of the best ways to deal with the social isolation and loneliness of older people is to help older people build social relationships. For seniors, joining an adult day center is a wonderful way to get involved in activities and meet people. Casa Central’s accredited Adult Wellness Center (AWC) offers bilingual services and daily in-center care to Latinos and others aged 60 and over, and offers a wide variety of fun and therapeutic activities in one safe and supervised environment. The Casa Central Adult Wellness Center is open Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and is located at 1343 N. California Avenue, Chicago, IL. If you, or someone you know, is interested in attending the Casa Central Adult Wellness Center, please contact Casa Central at 773-645-2487.
