Mission

At Adult Enrichment Centers, we engage adults of all abilities in community programs that promote inclusion and independence.

Notes from the nonprofit

AEC was established 33-years ago as a mission of Oakland Avenue Presbyterian Church.  Since that time, we’ve expanded services to provide fully licensed adult day health services in three local Centers - Rock Hill, Fort Mill, and York - serving 150 clients per day and more than 250 annually.  We operate fully accessible door-to-door transportation for over 80% of our members daily. We make long term care an affordable option for individuals and families who want to ‘age in place’ and delay institutional care as long as possible. High Five opened in 2006 as parents asked us to establish additional structured, goal-oriented day programs for their adult children with disabilities as they completed high school. Since that time, we’ve learned there is life long skill-building required for young adults with disabilities to be “life ready” and move towards independent living. We focus on “Actually, I Can” and champion equity for people of all abilities.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Adult Enrichment Centers directly addresses the third most identified community need of Affordable Senior Care as well as the third most identified Healthcare Need of Health & Wellness Programs based on the 2015 Community Needs Study. Adult Enrichment Centers also addresses two of the most identified problems or barriers reported by respondents: transportation and poverty. AEC provides highly accessible adult day health services as we operate door-to-door transportation for clients via wheelchair accessible vans and cut-away buses each day that the Centers are open. Approximately 80% of our clients meet federal poverty income guidelines which means they have extremely limited options for resolving health care access challenges in their lives.

By providing direct access to affordable health care, supervision, and consistent health monitoring for vulnerable and frail senior adults and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, AEC is an active collaborator and contributor to increasing access to health care services by 10% and improving the overall health indicators for all residents in York County.

We also address Workforce Preparedness in providing affordable senior care so that family caregivers may remain in the active, available pool of qualified and skilled workers and avoid unemployment. This same access improves indicators in the Income (Financial Stability) priority as we help families avoid living in poverty in order to provide care for a loved one. As well, we are eager partners in promoting the Earned Income Tax Credit to our families.

AEC provides services for adults age 18 and above with physical and/or intellectual disabilities which prevent them from independent self-care with daily activities of living. Many are socially isolated and need companionship in order to thrive. As well, the majority of our participants cannot be left at home alone safely and live with someone who is employed outside the home or desires to be, or is pursuing education, but cannot complete due to the responsibilities of caregiving.

Our organizational goals are:
• To provide social, therapeutic, and medical care for adults age 18 years of age and older;
• To improve the client's ability to function more independently for as long as possible;
• To rekindle zest for life through qualified mental and physical activities;
• To provide unconditional opportunities for our clients and meaningful connections for our families.

Participants receive assistance with personal care, including toileting, hygiene, and grooming. Additionally, we provide door-to-door transportation in wheelchair-accessible vehicles for approximately 80% of our participants to enable ready access for those needing services.

Each participant has a person-centered care plan developed with their specific needs and goals in mind. These Care plans are referenced daily with electronic medical records aligned with licensure standards of care. Families are kept informed of changes observed by our staff regarding their participants' medical, mental, or behavioral conditions along with identification of any related referrals that our Care Team identifies that could be helpful.

Adult Enrichment Centers is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency providing high quality, full service adult day health services at three locations in the county:
• 359 Park Avenue, Rock Hill SC – SC-DDSN licensed to serve 70 clients
• 105 Lestina Court, Fort Mill SC – SC-DHEC licensed to serve 50 clients
• 3 South Pacific Avenue, York SC – SC-DHEC licensed to serve 30 clients

Additionally, we offer community-based competitive employment services through High Five Works and provide pre-vocational and employment services.

Our organization was incorporated on October 28, 1985 and is governed by a 15-member board of directors comprised of business and community volunteers.

The agency has professional and para-professional experienced staff dedicated to delivering person-centered care for our members. We maintain a staff to client ratio of 1:6 in each Center (State licensure requires 1:8). The Leadership Team for the organization includes the Executive Director, Operations Director, Training & Quality Assurance Director and Finance Director. Additionally, there are Center Directors at our three licensed facilities that round out the organizational structure and communication at the program level for the organization. Currently, a total of 48 professional and paraprofessional staff serve over 240 clients annually in our three locations.

For UWYC our 2018-19 Logic Model identifies specific measures on health-related outcomes for seniors and adults with disabilities in our care:

Nurses Health Minutes: monthly presentations – 92% of members participated on high fat/low fat diets, cholesterol, insomnia, burns, first aid, asthma, seizures.

Swallowing assessment: RNs have completed assessments on 100% of new members enrolled; 100% of existing member assessments updated/completed annually

Person-centered Care: 100% of staff completed Person-Centered Care training in April 2018.

Referrals for Physical Therapy: Five formal referrals were made for physical therapy. We hired an Occupational Therapist to teach yoga/movement therapy quarterly for groups of 10 members.

Person-Centered Assessments for Individualized Care/ Activity and Interest Assessments related to Person-Centered Care: 100% of agency clients received Post-enrollment extended assessments to identify and implement Individual preferences. A pre-enrollment evaluation includes the review of preferences/care needs reported by family. During the first month’s attendance, Care Plans are amended as needed based upon observation and post-enrollment evaluation.

Customer service training completed for 100% of staff by Center Directors at onboarding and through continuing education. Additional customer service training annually for drivers by AEC Training Director. As Person-centered Care is integrated, specific measures of customer satisfaction are considered to drive our continuous improvement of service delivery.
