NH Adult Day Services

 

Adult day services is a professional care setting in which older adults, adults living with dementia, or adults living with disabilities receive individualized therapeutic, social, and health services for some part of the day.   

These programs are designed to help people stay mentally and physically active, reduce isolation, improve their health, and prevent decline of their abilities.

NH Adult Day Services

 

Adult day service centers provide a coordinated program of professional and compassionate services for adults in a community setting. Services are designed to provide social and some health services to adults who need supervised care in a safe place outside the home during the day. They also afford caregivers respite from the demanding responsibilities of caregiving. Adult day centers generally operate during normal business hours five days a week. Some programs offer services in the evenings and on weekends.

 

Although each facility may differ in terms of features, the following general services are offered by most adult day centers:

  • Social Activities—interaction with other participants in planned activities appropriate for their conditions and age

  • Transportation—door-to-door service

  • Meals and Snacks—participants are provided with meals and snacks

  • Personal care—help with toileting, grooming, eating and other personal activities of daily living

  • Therapeutic Activities—exercise and mental interaction for all participants. Some programs offer physical, occupational and/or speech therapy as well.
