Adult Day Programs

A Safe Place for an Older Loved One When You Can’t Be There

Adult Day Service centers provide care and supervision during the weekdays for older adults who can’t be left alone or unsupervised due to dementia or an inability to care for themselves. Participants come to the center on a regular basis while their family members work, run errands or simply take some time for themselves. These centers can be a huge help for family caregivers.

Attending an adult day center offers a great opportunity to socialize for attendees who otherwise might not spend a lot of time away from home. And many programs offer stimulating activities, like art and music, which are especially tailored to those with Alzheimer’s, dementia or physical limitations. Lunch and snacks are often included as well (these may have additional cost).  Some centers may provide additional services like transportation to and from the center, physical therapy, medication dispensing, or help with personal care and hygiene.

Care at adult day centers must be arranged ahead of time. Drop-in services are not typically available. Attendees usually come following a regular schedule. They can come a few hours a week, one day a week, or a full day, every weekday. Most centers are open on weekdays, from six to ten hours a day. Some may offer evening or weekend hours.

You’ll have to check with the center to make sure they are able to accommodate your loved one’s needs. Does your loved need help eating or need using the bathroom? Will they need medication during the day or have do they sometimes engage in challenging behaviors? These are things you’ll need to discuss with the center ahead of time to make sure your loved one is a good fit. People at the end stages of Alzheimer’s or the advanced stages of dementia or chronic illness may not a good fit for an adult day program.

The Area Agency on Aging 1-B (AAA 1-B) provides direct funding to help support the operations of some adult day programs in the six-county region we serve. Some of these AAA 1-B-funded programs may offer a reduced fee to families who have a financial need. (You should talk directly to the program to see if you qualify.)

Adult day programs that receive funding from the AAA 1-B are located in Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, Clinton Township, Howell, Monroe, Port Huron, St. Clair Shores, Sterling Heights and Warren. The AAA 1-B also works directly with some other adult day centers in the area to provide services to people that participate in AAA 1-B care programs. The adult day centers with which the AAA 1-B has a relationship are listed below.
