Frequently Asked Questions

About Adult Day Services

Adult Day Services is a system of professionally delivered, integrated, home and community-based, therapeutic, social and health-related services provided to individuals to sustain living within the community.

Finding the Right Adult Day Center

Adult day services centers serve as an emerging provider of transitional care and short-term rehabilitation following hospital discharge. Their reliable support helps restore balance in times of crisis and enhance overall quality of life for caregivers. Adult day services allow working caregivers to attend to job responsibilities with the comfort of knowing their family member is in a professionally staffed, supportive group program. For individuals who have long-term care insurance policies that cover adult day services, it can serve as a less costly solution that will help to efficiently use the maximum benefits available under their plan. Adult day services can benefit employees who are caregivers with a viable work/life solution that can result in a more productive and satisfied workforce.
