Adult Day Center programs provide respite care for the caregiver needing to take a break. The benefits of this program are threefold; enhancing the lives of the elderly participants through devoted care and attention, lowering the family stress level brought on by worry and the pressure of constant care, and allowing the elderly to remain at home with their families.
The adult day care provides the participants with essential care and attention, hot nutritious meals, recreational activities, physical exercise, and social interaction while family members work, participate in community activities, run errands or just get away for an afternoon off.
The Area Agency on Aging provides the following adult day care centers:
