With life expectancy continuing to rise, more and more of us need assistance as we age. While there are many different types of senior care available, adult day care centers are designed for older adults who can no longer manage independently, or who are isolated and lonely.
Sometimes family members or primary caregivers may feel reluctant to use adult day care services because they are unfamiliar, or because a loved one is hesitant to try something new. However, a well-run adult day care center can benefit both the senior and the caregiver. Participants can benefit from socializing with others and receiving needed care services. Caregivers can benefit by getting a break from caregiving duties while knowing that a loved one is in good hands.
