About the Center
When is my loved one ready for Adult Day Services?
- When they can no longer engage in their daily activities
- When they are lonely or depressed
- When it is unsafe for them to stay alone
- When the person they live with is away from the home most of the day
It is much easier to start a loved one at a center while they can fully enjoy the activities and company of others. As their abilities and needs change they will be familiar with the setting and routine of the center, making it more comfortable for them as they progress.
When choosing a day center, determining the needs for your loved one will help in the choosing of the center. There are different types of adult day centers: Social model verses Medical model centers. For details on both types of day centers and services, see this page from the CAADS website. For further information or if you have any questions and need help deciding, please feel free to call us and ask.
Adult day care has been proven to improve health-related quality of life for participants, according to the National Adult Day Services Association (NASDA).
