Overview

Adult Day Care by Lenore A Tate, Cynthia M Brennan

Intended for long-term care providers, consumers, and gerontology students, this valuable new guidebook and manual encourages the promotion and enhancement of adult day care as an essential link in long-term care. Since the early 1970s, the number of adult day care centers in the United States has grown from 20 to more than 620. This rapid increase in adult day care programs indicates that it is an important health care and social resource that has begun to fill a necessary gap in the long-term care system. To further meet the increasing needs, this new book provides information regarding the history, definition, and concept of adult day care; models of care; scope of activities; state and national policy; and samples of forms and reports needed for daily operations.
