As Oklahoma ages, adult care systems become more strained
What is Adult Day Health Services?
Adult Day Services is an organized day care program for functionally impaired people over the age of 60 and developmentally disabled people. The service began in Oklahoma in 1983 as an attempt to offer a community-based option for people who wanted to avoid being left alone during the day, while remaining in the home with family at night. Adult Day Services allow caregivers to work during the day while knowing their loved ones are in a safe environment.
