Adult Day Services
Medical and Social Models of Service
Adult day care bridges the gap between living alone and high levels of care. Adult day services may offer help for caregivers who are unable to watch their loved one during the day. Adult day services provide safe and proper care.
There are at least two kinds of day care models, social and medical. Social models of adult day services are designed to provide activities that will allow participants to use their cognitive, motor, language, and social skills. Medical models of adult day services provide health and rehabilitation service, in addition to social interaction activities. The type of adult day services you seek may be determined by the level of care required. Speak to a facility representative to determine if the fit is right for you and your loved one.
