Adult Day Service Centers

As a senior citizen, there will be times when getting out of the house and spending time with other people will help relieve boredom, stress, and anxiety.

If you are able to live on your own in your senior years, you may start looking into adult day services as a way to get out and socialize with other people in a safe and secure environment. The care provided may also allow delays in nursing home placement as you get older.

The National Adult Day Services Association (NADSA) was formed in 1979 to set up a national standardized criteria for adult day service providers. This criteria gave caregivers the ability to rate adult day centers and give feedback on the services provided to their loved ones.

Adult day service centers provide services that are community based and geared towards providing settings that promote compassion towards those who participate. They are an emerging provider of transitional care and short-term and/or long term rehabilitation following hospital discharge.

The centers may also furnish transportation, meals, and mental and physical therapeutic regimens to seniors who are in need. Other activities may include dancing, singing, reading, playing cards and other games, watching television, and outings to parks, malls, museums, and other venues.

In many centers, specialized health services are also provided to seniors with dementia, alzheimer's, or physical ailments who need supervised medical care while they are outside the home during the day. Most centers have a licensed nursing professional on duty at all times.

Adult day service centers provide rest breaks for caregivers who spend much of their time involved in the demanding responsibilities that are inherent with caregiving. They are usually open during normal business hours Monday through Friday and some offer services during evening hours and on weekends.
