Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) is an outpatient community program, which has the goal of providing health and social therapeutic services to frail seniors and disabled adults, enabling them to live independently in their own homes, with their families, and it provides the family or informal caregivers with some respite. From a policy perspective, ADHC programs are part of the Adult Day Services (ADS) also know as Adult Day Care (ADC) programs that have the over-reaching goal to reduce health care spending by reducing, avoiding or delaying nursing home placements and decreasing emergency room utilization. The purpose of this study is to examine the reasons that seniors, who used to attend ADHC services, stopped attending and disenrolled from their ADHC program. This research looked at ex-participants' demographic characteristics, medical conditions, reasons for enrolling, reasons for attending, satisfaction with the services received and reasons for disenrolling from their ADHC programs.
