What is the difference between Adult Day Care and Assisted Living?
Adult Day Care is designed for seniors who need assistance with activities of daily living, including bathing, grooming and dressing. It also provides health care services such as medication administration, nurse assessments, physical activity classes and socialization opportunities. Adult Day Care is a daytime service, rather than a 24/7 support, that is geared toward helping people remain in their homes as long as possible and to delay or prevent the need for a more costly long-term care option like senior living. Assisted Living offers a more comprehensive range of services such as meals, housekeeping, transportation and 24/7 care by trained staff. They are designed for those who can no longer live independently at home due to medical needs or cognitive impairment.
