Facility-Based Respite/Adult Day Care
Facility-based respite care is the provision of relief or rest for a primary caregiver
from the constant, continued supervision and care of a functionally-impaired older person by providing care for the older person in an approved facility-based
environment for a specified period of time.
Adult day care is a program of therapeutic social and health activities and services
provided to elders who have functional impairments. Services are provided in a protective, community-based environment.
