Ceili Cottage Adult Day Services

Care for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia

The Ceili Cottage Adult Day Services Program is a new approach to dementia care and an alternative option that is designed to meet the needs of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. This adult day program is offered in a unique residential setting in Sioux Falls and serves individuals living throughout the Sioux Empire.

This special day program has one direct-care staff member working for every four participants in attendance. This ratio allows for Person-Centered Care programming. All individuals employed at the Ceili Cottage are nationally certified dementia-care specialists; this training is offered through the Alzheimer’s Association essentiALZ curriculum. The Ceili Cottage partners with caregivers and physicians in a team approach to provide each participant with a program that is tailored to his or her own needs.

Participants in the Ceili Cottage program receive mental and physical stimulation that helps to improve their well-being and quality of life while offering respite for caregivers. By participating in this program, individuals can delay and potentially eliminate the need for long-term care placement.

Ceili Cottage Participants and their Families are provided with the following opportunities:

  • An affordable option to remain in their own home and receive care and companionship in their own community.
  • Access to Person-Centered activity programs that build on their abilities and encourage success.
  • Supervision in a supported home-like environment that offers the opportunity for new friendships.
  • Respite for caregivers allows for a much-needed break or provides the opportunity for caregivers to remain employed.

The Ceili Cottage Adult Day Services program is graciously funded by the Sioux Empire United Way, the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, Active Generations, the State of South Dakota and individual donations.
