The directory provides information on choosing an adult day services program by describing more than 3,000 programs, contact names, comprehensive profiles of ADS programs and service and satellite programs.
AThis directory allows for easy access because day care centers are listed by counties within a state,@ said Phyllis Harris, director of research at Health Resources Publishing. AFor example, if you are searching from another state or you=re in another state, the information is searchable by county and is indexed by state in alphabetical order. Using the directory, individuals can compare programs around the state or country and look-up the services and activities offered by the adult day care centers,@ she explained.
The directory is an important informational tool to guide family members and caregivers when researching adult day care programs. AMany families and caregivers are not aware of the adult day care services available in the community,@ said Robert K. Jenkins, publisher of the directory.
AThe number of adult day care programs has grown significantly in recent years reflecting the demographic trends of an aging population,@ he added.
AAdult day care programs are also a community response and help to keep the person in need of assistance at home and in the community longer. Families, and even employers are seeking information on care options for their loved ones,@ Jenkins said.
