Frequently Asked Questions
What is adult day care?
An adult day care is a long-term healthcare facility that offers medical and recreational services to individuals who are living with both short and long-term medical conditions. Day services include support for individuals who require assistance with activities of daily living. Adult day care programs are not only more cost effective than assisted living facilities and nursing homes, but also provide social interactions to prevent mental deterioration and isolation. Adult day care facilities are a growing source of long-term care that provide much-needed relief to full-time caregivers, while uplifting the lives of the elderly.
