The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released a proposed rule on Friday, January 9, 2015, with new science-based nutrition standards for meals provided through USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).  The rule will provide older adults and adults in nonresidential daycare settings greater access to nutritious foods.  Adult day centers that participate in the CACFP are encouraged to provide feedback on the proposed changes.  Read the Proposed CACFP Rule

Those interested in reviewing the proposal and offering comments during the 90 day period are encouraged to do so once it is published at www.regulations.gov, a Web-based portal to make it easy for citizens to participate in the federal rulemaking process. All comments received will be considered carefully in finalizing the rule before it is implemented

Posted November 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Caregivers who employ adult daycare services to help care for individuals with dementia have fewer emotional ups and downs, and that may protect the caregivers’ health, according to Penn State researchers.

Yin Liu, a doctoral candidate, is the first author. Additional authors include Steven H. Zarit, distinguished professor of human development and family studies (HDFS); David M. Almeida, professor of human development and family studies; and Kyungmin Kim, postdoctoral scholar.

The study examined associations between fluctuation in daily negative affect (i.e., depression and anger) and use of adult daycare, daily experiences, and other caregiving characteristics.  Read more
