The growing number of elderly, federal and state efforts to meet consumer demands, and increased costs of overall long-term care services, have led to an expansion of adult day and home and community-based service programs. These centers can be medical/health or social centers, or a combination of both. Medical adult care centers provide the same services as social models, but include a nurse on staff and offer health and medication monitoring. Core services that most facilities offer include therapeutic activities, meals, transportation, social services, and education. Centers typically contract with other organizations to provide at least one or more of the core services, particularly transportation and meals. Many facilities are affiliated with other organizations, including home care agencies, skilled nursing facilities, medical centers, or other senior service providers.
