How to Choose a Day Care continued...

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

The cost of adult day care varies from place to place. Centers funded by corporations or religious groups can be less expensive options. If your loved one gets medical services such as physical or speech therapy through the program, Medicare, Medicaid, or veterans' benefits may cover part of the costs.
