Q: How can I talk to my loved one about adult day care?
A: Change can be difficult for a person with a cognitive impairment. However, do not assume they cannot go or will not be willing to go. These suggestions may help your loved one have an easier transition:
- Ask your loved one’s doctor to make the recommendation.
- Ask your loved one to “volunteer” there, and set this up with the staff’s help.
- Treat your loved one’s visits to the center as if he or she is going to work.
- Talk to your loved one very directly in a concerned manner.
- Talk to the current adult day center staff for ideas based on your loved one’s history of hobbies and interests.
Q: How do I pay for adult day care?
A: The cost of adult day care is a fraction of the cost of full-time in-home care, and it can be paid for in a variety of ways. Private funds, long term care insurance, and veteran’s benefits are options. In addition, scholarship or grant funding may be available.
