Adult day care services have become a popular alternative for taking care of our loved ones instead of sending them to nursing homes or paying outrageous prices for in-home care. There are different types and levels of adult day care, making these services specific to individual needs. So, those who need daily assistance and want to socialize but do not need constant medical supervision are able to attend an adult care program that is designed for them. The following are the three main types of adult day care.
- Social Adult Day Care – These services provide supervision and socializing opportunities but do not offer medical supervision. They are designed to help adults who need some assistance with daily living and want to socialize, but without the intrusive medical supervision that they do not need.
- Adult Day Healthcare – Programs that offer these services include medical supervision with a trained nursing staff. They often also include therapeutic services, like physical speech and occupational. Adults who attend these programs are given the medical attention they need throughout the day but are also able to socialize with others who they can relate to.
- Specialized Adult Day Care – these services are typically designated for specialized medical conditions that require constant supervision. For example, those who suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s can attend a program like this during the day. People who suffer from this condition are able to socialize in a safe environment with trained medical supervision to prevent injury and behavioral challenges.
