Adult Day Services and Respite

Adult Day Services (ADS) provide a break (respite) to the caregiver while providing health related and therapeutic services and social activities for adults with a wide variety of care needs, including those with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, developmental, intellectual, physical and/or other cognitive disabilities and other conditions that increase their care needs. This fact sheet is a primer on Adult Day Services, providing background on who uses adult day services, the benefits of ADS, and the types of ADS and the services provided.  It explores innovative models of ADS and provides information for family caregivers and those who assist them on how to find and choose quality ADS, and how to pay for it.
