Adult Day Centers

A Safe Place for a Loved One When You Can’t Be There

Adult day service centers offer weekday care for older adults who can’t be left alone or unsupervised due to dementia or an inability to care for themselves. Participants come to the center on a regular basis while their family members work, run errands or simply take a break. These centers can be a huge help for family caregivers.

Attending an adult day service center offers your loved one a great opportunity to get out of the house and socialize.  Many programs offer stimulating activities, like art and music, which are tailored to those with Alzheimer’s, dementia or physical limitations. Lunch and snacks are often included (check to see if there is an additional cost), and some centers offer transportation to and from the center, physical therapy, medication reminders/administration, or help with personal care and hygiene.

Drop-in services are not typically available, so call ahead of time.  Attendees usually follow a regular schedule, coming in a few hours a week, one day a week or every weekday. Some centers offer evening or weekend hours.

You’ll have to check with the center to make sure it is able to accommodate your loved one’s needs. For example, does he need help eating or using the bathroom? Does she need medication during the day? Does he sometimes engage in challenging behaviors? People at the end stages of Alzheimer’s or the advanced stages of dementia or chronic illness may not a good fit for an adult day services. Ask if you’re not sure.

The Area Agency on Aging 1-B (AAA 1-B) provides direct funding to help support the operations of some adult day services in our six-county region. Some of these may offer a reduced fee to families that have a financial need. Contact the center to see if you qualify.

Adult day service centers that receive funding from the AAA 1-B are located in Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, Clinton Township, Howell, Monroe, Port Huron, St. Clair Shores and Southfield. The AAA 1-B also works directly with some other adult day service centers in the area to provide services to people that participate in AAA 1-B care programs. The adult day service centers with which the AAA 1-B has a relationship are listed below.
