Adult Day Services
An adult daycare center is a non-residential facility specializing in providing activities for elderly or disabled individuals. Some specialize in the care of people with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Participation in adult day care often delays admission to assisted living and nursing homes, as participants are able to remain at home with family members longer due to the added support. For participants who would otherwise stay at home alone, the social stimulation and recreational activities often improve, maintain, or delay decline of physical and cognitive function. For caregivers, adult day care centers provide respite care, enabling caregivers to work or to have a break from their care giving responsibilities.
