How You Can Help
ADULT DAY CARE
Adult day care centers provide a safe place where adults with disabilities can go for a day or even a few hours. Centers, open to people 18 years and older, are staffed with professionals who care for people who have Alzheimer’s disease, cerebral palsy, head and spinal cord trauma, chronic diseases and other disabilities.
At $65 per day, adult day care is an excellent, lower-cost option for families who want to stay together longer. Some families struggle to pay. Some caregivers quit their jobs or go from full-time to half-time and most caregivers get little relief from the stress of providing long-term care.
You can help provide adult day care scholarships.
