What are some tips for choosing the right day care for my loved ones with Alzheimer's disease?

ANSWER

Local churches and senior centers may have a list of nearby adult day care programs. You can also check with assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

When you’ve found a center, learn about its application process and who they serve. And look at sample menus and activity calendars.

Once you’ve done some research, consider:

  • How long the program’s been open
  • Who owns or sponsors it
  • When it’s open
  • How much it costs
  • If insurance covers it
  • If it offers transportation to and from the center
