Adult Day Care Centers provide a day time activity center for seniors who need companionship or supervision during the day. The programs are community based and offer seniors a safe, supervised environment while family members are able to go to work or caregivers a respite during the day.
Frequently adult day care centers may are part of senior centers, nursing homes, churches, schools or other community facilities. Typically, these families operate only during normal business hours and not during holidays or weekends. Some do however, have extended hours.
Adult day care facilities offer a variety of services but most offer the following
• Social activities
• Meals and snacks
• Personal care
• Therapeutic activities
• Medication monitoring
