Adult Day Centers
An adult day center is a service that is provided outside the home but often has a home-like environment. It is designed to meet the individual needs of participants and to support strengths, abilities and independence. Throughout the day, participants have the opportunity to interact with others while being part of a structured environment.
Many caregivers who work during the day find this type of center very helpful as they try to balance a job with caregiving duties. Hours of service vary at each center, but some are open from 7 to 10 hours per day, five days a week. Some may even offer weekend and evening hours, and most centers provide a meal and snacks.
