About Triple-R

For over twenty-five years, the City of Sacramento’s Older Adult Services division has offered a unique daytime support program to meet the social and care needs of people with dementia, while their family members get respite from round-the-clock caregiving. Triple-R Adult Day Centers are licensed by the State of California and operate at three locations.

What to expect at Triple-R

At Triple-R we work to keep life interesting and fun for people with mild to severe memory issues (dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease). We know that everyone is unique; our staff works to discover what makes each Triple-R member special and then gives them the person-centered care they deserve.

A day at Triple-R includes both group and individual endeavors. Building strength and energy levels while doing fun exercises, chatting about the news of the day (or yesterday!), making or tapping a toe to upbeat music, cooking up an afternoon treat, and tending to the garden can all part of a typical day. And tomorrow will bring more engaging things to do. Our talented staff uses creativity to come up with the perfect project to match individuals’ unique interests and background. A hot, nutritious meal is provided at noontime, and snacks are offered throughout the day.

Assistance to Triple-R members who have mobility issues or other physical limitations or a need for help in the rest room is always provided with sensitivity. Creating a sense of wellbeing for all we have the honor to serve is our goal. Challenging dementia behaviors such as wandering, confusion, agitation or mood swings are handled by our state-of-the-art trained staff with skill and compassion.

People with mild memory loss may choose to attend Club Refresh, a special center for those in the early stages of dementia.

Schedules

Triple-R offers memory care services Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., though schedules vary at each of our centers. Attendance at Triple-R can range from one to five days per week – you choose!

Fees

Monthly fees for Triple-R vary depending on care needs and attendance schedules. Most Long Term Care insurance policies cover attendance at Triple-R, and other payment mechanisms may be available, depending on circumstances. Please discuss with program staff.

Getting started

It’s easy! Contact the Program Coordinator at any of the three Triple-R Adult Day Centers and request an information packet (including our brochure, newsletter, lunch menus and fee scale). Or, ask to schedule a visit - either on your own or with others in your family – to see Triple-R in action.

Once you’ve decided to join, schedule a New Member interview, which will take about an hour-and-a-half.

Support for Caregivers

Caring for someone with memory loss can be a big challenge and Triple-R strives to be your caregiving partner. We’ll work closely with you to share communication tips and care techniques to use at home. In addition, educational workshops, support groups and even caregiver paint nights are part of Triple-R’s service to the community.
