ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to understand the adult day care center as a place for the elders and adults and to develop an initial understanding of the services and activity programs for adult day care for the cognitively-impaired in the U.S.A. The data were collected from 12 Adult Day Care Centers(ADC) from 2001 to 2002 by personal interview and the documents about the programs. ADC programs provided primarily social, recreational, and health activities and services in a group setting. Centers offered participants to socialize, enjoy peer support, and receive health and social services in a stimulating and supportive environment that promotes better physical and mental health. For this purpose those centers offered not only professional health care, occupational.speech.physical therapies but also socio-recreation and therapeutic-recreation services.
