Abstract

Adult day services (ADS) are the leading provider of community-based care for persons with dementia and their caregivers. While the provision of caregiver respite is well-documented, little is known about the provision of other forms of dementia caregiver support. Logistic regression analyses of ADS providers (N = 297) in the MetLife Study indicated that the number of hours of social work support was a significant predictor of case management services, while nonprofit status was a significant predictor of caregiver education and support groups. These findings have implications for practice and policy related to this growing provider of dementia services.
