Caregiving : Falling Short: Too Few Adult Day Centers
Posted by jkz on Jan-14-2004 (2409 reads)

Adult day services allows chronically ill people to continue living at home yet receive the care they need. These centers, located in many communities across the country, provide health, social, and support services for adults with impaired physical, mental, and/or social abilities. At the same time, they offer family caregivers much-needed respite and allows them to continue working.


This option is available in far too few cases, according to a nationwide survey of adult day services, conducted by Partners in Caregiving: The Adult Day Services Program and supported by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Key findings of this study and a comprehensive collection of resources related to adult day services can be found in a new Special Report on the RWJF Web site at:
