What is an Adult Day Center?
Adult day care centers are day programs for adults who need supervision throughout the day. These centers provide a structured environment with activities to meet the physical, social, emotional, and mental needs of their participants. Often these centers provide assistance with activities of daily living. When you can not afford care in the home, assisted living, personal care living or nursing facility options Adult day centers provide an alternative. KIPDA, the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency, is an association of local governments in a nine-county region of southern Indiana and north central Kentucky. They found that Adult day centers offer a service which allows relief for caregivers and provides a positive, creative environment for the participants.
