My family member never was one to participate in a lot of group activities. How will I get him/her to attend? What do I do when my loved one says they are just fine at home alone and don’t need day care?

It is not uncommon to see some reluctance to attending social day programs at first. After a few days, routine is established and the program becomes something not to be missed. It becomes a reason to get up in the morning; something to which we can look forward. Even people who were never particularly interested in group activities almost always adjust to the daily routines and benefit from the stimulation and opportunities for socialization. Being home alone can lead to boredom, loneliness, depression, and more health complaints.
