Adult Day Care
Adult day Care offers therapeutic programs for the health, safety and well-being of adults who have functional impairments. It provides a protective setting where services are provided on a less than 24-hour basis during a center’s operating hours. A Variety of activities are offered that might include exercise, health screening and education, interpersonal communication, and behavior modification. Leisure activities might include arts and crafts, hobbies, and outside activities. Adult day care also provides respite care for functionally impaired adults for the purpose of relieving the primary caregivers. Some nursing homes, ALFs, and hospitals also provide adult day services. Cost - Can be paid by private funds, by some insurance policies, by some programs administered through the Department of Elder Affairs and the Department of Children and Families, or by a Florida Medicaid waiver program (if both the participant and the center are eligible).
