Adult day care for Alzheimer's patients: Different Personalities

Caregivers of folks with early on-set Alzheimer's face unique challenges, not unlike those who care for parents or children who have suffered debilitating brain injuries. These younger people often don't quite belong with the older generation found in many adult day care settings.

Adult day care, or day services as some are called, is one of the newer forms of caring for people who need help during the day. I toured a number of adult day centers in my community awhile back and they each had a different personality. Some are attached to nursing homes, which works great for elders who will soon need to be transitioned to a nursing home, though they can work well for other people, as well.

Adult day care centers are also more affordable and preferred over typical senior facilities. Many families are turning to day programs to provide for their elders needs.
