Most states require licenses for adult day-care centers and some even require certification. To find licensed and certified centers in your area and to learn more about adult day care, visit the eldercare.gov web site.

The cost of adult day care varies from facility to facility. Centers funded by corporations or religious organizations can also be relatively inexpensive. If medical services such as physical or speech therapy are provided, Medicare, Medicaid, or veterans' benefits may cover part of the costs.
