With the rapidly increasing older adult population in our nation and around the world, the number of people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other related dementias also increases. Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias are devastating illnesses. The most important risk factor for dementia is advanced age. Adult day care programs are valuable services that assist people diagnosed with AD and their families. The purpose of this project was to obtain funding to support the expansion of an existing adult day care service so that older adults with limited resources can access services.
