Frequently Asked Questions
What is Senior Day Care?
This refers to the daytime care of an elderly person who cannot be left unsupervised during the day. Care is provided at an outpatient center where the senior may spend a few hours, or the whole day, with other seniors in a safe, controlled setting. A daytime meal, snacks and group activities are typically offered.
Why do participants require supervision?
They usually suffer from Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, or memory loss. Other forms of infirmity may include, chronic depression, loneliness, visual or hearing impairment, physical disability, an injury, or the frailty of advanced age.
What is Adult Day Care?
Adult Day Care involves the daytime care of adults (of any age) who need full-time supervision due to having been disabled by illness, disease, injury, or old age.
Which program is better?
It depends on the needs of the participant. Seniors generally prefer a Senior Day Care facility because they are among other seniors exclusively. Although, if an Adult Day Care center specializes in a particular disability, it may be a better choice for a senior with special needs associated with that disability.
