Adult day programs improve quality of life for seniors and caregivers
When your older adult can’t safely be alone all day on their own or if they feel lonely or isolated, consider enrolling them in an adult day program.
Adult day programs can help an older adult remain at home longer – delaying the need to move to assisted living.
They also allow seniors to socialize while getting the care they need.
Day programs are also a great way for caregivers to get much-needed breaks to reduce stress and prevent burnout so your own health doesn’t significantly decline while caregiving.
They can be especially helpful if you work full time outside of the home and your older adult needs affordable care during the day.
We explain what adult day programs are, how they help seniors live at home longer, who would do well in these programs, how they help caregivers, and how much they cost.

Thanks so much for talking about how caregivers can get burned out too. We've been looking into in-home care for my grandmother so we can ensure she's safe every day. We'll have to be sure to work out a schedule that doesn't burn out her caregiver.
