Elderly day care centers are places where elderly adults can go for care and companionship during the day. These centers are specifically for elderly adults who need care throughout the day but who can't afford a caregiver or whose family members cannot stay with them.
Elderly day care centers have opened all across the United States in order to delay or prevent an elderly adult from having to go to a nursing home prematurely. These centers provide specialized care for elderly adults and can provide these adults with the medical care they need and the supervision they need. Elderly day cares also offer elderly adults the chance to meet new people and socialize with other elderly adults in their community.
