Questions to Ask Before Choosing an Adult Day Care Center

Finding an adult day care center for your live-in loved one can be a daunting task. While these centers all offer basic assistance and nurses outside of your home, there are additional services and factors to keep in mind before making your final selection.

  • What medical services do you offer?
    Different medical challenges require different medical care. Nurses and staff are generally there to assist your loved ones in the case of an emergency, but some adult day care centers offer additional services. For instance, does your loved one suffer from Alzheimer's or dementia? Are they in need of speech or physical therapy? What kind of medicinal monitoring is required? Is there a disability to take into consideration? Ask questions that ensure the needs of your family member can be met at that particular institution.

  • Are socialization services offered?
    Just as important as medical support is the generational socialization available within some adult day care centers. Art, music, or dance therapy might be a resource to consider for your family member.

  • Do you offer respite care?
    In addition to housing your loved one during work hours, some adult day care centers offer respite care. In these cases, short term residential services are offered. You can visit and check in on your loved one, but also get some time alone to tend to other matters.

  • Does the facility offer transportation?
    Often, work schedules make it challenging to get your family member delivered to the center each morning and picked up at night. If this is a problem for your family, ask potential centers if they offer transportation assistance to and from your home.

  • Do you accept insurance?
    Although not as expensive as long term care, these facilities can still be costly Consider talking with both your insurance company and the care center to see how you can reduce costs.

    Adult day care centers have to hire employees who have been trained to work with elderly individuals who might be disabled or handicapped. Many of the seniors enrolled at the centers have health concerns, so each facility must make sure to hire professionals who understand the community's special needs.

    Most adult day care centers employ professional nurses who can assist in the health care and counseling of seniors who might have dementia or other disabilities. Nursing professionals vary significantly in their training, so the center might need a staff of experts who can focus on their own areas of expertise. For instance, some nurses might create meal plans that meet nutritional guidelines. Others might create programs that include outings, activities, and socialization time for the seniors. These programs can improve happiness and help seniors stay healthy.

    Many adult day care centers offer transportation services for elderly people. They, therefore, need employees with clean driving records who can pick them up from home. These employees are also responsible for transportation during scheduled outings.

    Like all businesses, adult day care centers need managers who can oversee the organization. The business decisions made, however, depend on whether the organization is a nonprofit, public, or private company. The type of managers that the elderly center hires often depends on the way that the organization is structured. Those that focus on public service should have experience applying for funding that will keep costs low so that more people in the community can afford to participate in activities and the facility.
