Some people are delighted to reach an age when they can retire. Yet, many, after a few weeks or months of doing whatever they want, they begin to miss having a reason to get out of bed in the morning. That feeling pushes many people into a volunteering mode. It's no different for someone with Alzheimer's disease. They, too, want to feel useful. Adult day care is often referred to as a "club," or someplace to volunteer. And good centers do offer these elders a chance to accomplish something. They promote a sense of purpose.
