Adult Day Care

Adult Day Care Centers provide supervised activities and social contacts to those older adults who require more support than can be provided at a Senior Community Center. This service provides a respite for caregivers, enabling them to work outside of the home or to just take a break from the daily rigors of 24-hour caregiving.

Services such as socialization, recreation, nutrition, transportation, supervision, basic personal care, reality orientation, and self-help training can be found in the Adult Day Care Centers. A care manager with the York County Area Agency on Aging (YCAAA) must complete an assessment of the individual's medical, physical, and emotional needs to authorize this service.

Services are provided on a sliding fee scale based on income. Staff members of the Adult Day Care Centers are trained and qualified to work with frail, disabled elderly.
