Are you alone during the day? Would you like to spend time with others? Would you like to learn new skills?
Who Can Get help?
People Who Are Older or Who Have Physical Disabilities
Whether you live by yourself or you stay by yourself when your family goes to work, you don't have to be alone. If you attend a daytime program, sometimes called adult day care, you can have fun, learn and be with others. You also may get help with some tasks, such as taking medicine.
Some senior centers and churches offer programs just for seniors. Others are for all ages. Some are purely social.
People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
There are many programs that can help you get, keep or improve your skills so you can live successfully in the community. These programs are sometimes called day habilitation programs.
