MADISON, Wis. – To complement its hospice care, supportive care, personal care and grief support services, Agrace is opening a freestanding adult day center in Madison. Kewana Jamison, registered nurse (RN), has been appointed to lead the effort as Agrace adult day manager.
The Agrace Adult Day Center is for older adults who would benefit from daytime care and companionship. In preparation for the Center’s opening later this spring, Jamison is helping develop the Center by hiring caregivers, a dementia specialist, a menu coordinator and a chef. She will oversee day-to-day operations, manage activities for its senior clients, and work with each client and their family to ensure their individual needs are being met.
“The Agrace Adult Day Center is open to any elderly person who needs extra support and attention while their caregiver or family member cannot stay home with them,” said Agrace Chief Development Officer Marcia Whittington. “With Kewana’s experience and her passion for guiding exceptional care, families can feel confident their loved one’s needs are being met while they are with us.”
Jamison, a registered nurse, earned a Bachelor of Science in nursing and an associate degree in nursing from Herzing University in Madison. Prior to joining Agrace, she was assistant director of nursing at Villa at Middleton Village, a post-acute and long-term care facility in Middleton. There, she supervised and educated its nursing staff, conducted audits to ensure quality care and provided care to patients.
The Agrace Adult Day Center will provide drop-in senior care on weekdays. This new facility, at 1702 W. Beltline Highway, is centrally located in Madison. For more information about the Agrace Adult Day Center, call (608) 276-4660 or visit Agrace.org/AdultDayCenter
