Adult day care services offer professional care for seniors and adults living with dementia and other disabilities. They receive therapeutic, social and health services during the day. Adult day care is also a great solution if the senior needs supervision for safety reasons, is expressing depression or isolation, needs socialization and engaging activities, or if the caregiver simply needs respite. Adult day care gives caregivers the opportunity to work while their loved one is safe.
If Mom and Dad want to age in place at home, adult day care offers an affordable solution for working caregivers (see table). The figures are based on national averages — Hawai‘i’s figures are generally higher.
