From the MetLife Longterm Care Survey

“We’re seeing that more and more Adult Day Services centers have become a staple in communities in recent years,” said Dr. Sandra Timmermann, director of the MetLife Mature Market Institute. “Older Americans, people with disabilities and family caregivers rely on them for the services they provide. ADS centers make it possible for people to continue to live in their homes and receive affordable care in a supportive, professionally staffed, community-based setting. They also benefit family caregivers by enabling them to remain in the workforce or receive needed respite and support services. The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the health care reform bill), and an increasing focus on managing chronic illness within the Medicare program, speaks to the importance of developing care models such as Adult Day Services to meet the needs of a growing population of older Americans.”
