Celebrate National Adult Day Services Week 2012!

“Adult Day Services:  Care. Compassion. Community.”

National Adult Day Services Week is September 16-22, 2012.  The third complete week of September is set aside to raise awareness of the availability and accessibility of adult day programs nationwide. The National Adult Day Services Association is delighted to sponsor this special week of celebration as over 5,000 adult day centers nationwide unite to celebrate “Adult Day Services: Care. Compassion. Community.”  Make sure your community knows that your center exists, and about all the services it offers to build better lives for the people and communities it serves!

 Order a poster from the NADSA online store to promote the valuable community resources of adult day services in your community.  Use content from the 2010 MetLife Study of Adult Day Services to reinforce how cost effective and resourceful adult day services are.   Plan to participate in the 2012 National Study of Long Term Care Providers this fall to inform the first federal study about your adult day center!
