4/19/2016 - New senior day center opening in Spotsylvania

A new senior day center is opening this fall in Spotsylvania County.

The day center will occupy the 4,000 square foot former Tidewater Market at 10721 Tidewater Trail.

Enhancing Life Senior Day Center is owned by married couple Eric and Sonya Ward. The Wards also own Best Choice Home Care, an in-home care service.

Eric Ward is a local nurse and said he has seen the need through work and his business for a service that allows seniors to be less isolated and work on meaningful activities.

The Wards hope to open the center in September after renovating the space.

“This center is about giving seniors community and purpose,” he said. “This is a place they can spend all day while family members are at work and interact with more than just one home health worker. You get more out of it for less than someone coming to your house costs.”
