What is adult day care?

Adult day care provides daytime services to seniors who may be cognitively or physically impaired while giving a day of respite to their caregivers. The variety of services offered ranges from socialization and recreational activities to health and other support resources. Seniors are able to continue living with their loved ones in the comfort of their own home and receive the care and attention they need during the day while their caregiver is at work or having needed personal time.

What it is not:

•It is not a nursing home, which takes the person out of the home and community.
•It is not in-home care, which leaves the person isolated.
