Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of the study was to learn more about the ways in which caregivers perceive the effects of adult day services. The goal was to help inform adult day providers about services family caregivers find useful. An ecological model was used as a framework. Data were collected from focus groups consisting of spouse and nonspouse family caregivers of past and current participants in two different program models of adult day services: adult day care and adult day health services. There were few differences in the way caregivers of past and current participants perceived adult day services. One major difference was that some caregivers of past participants perceived that the programs had failed to provide support to them after their family member passed away. Although spouse and nonspouse caregivers used adult day services for different reasons, the main reason reported by both was to keep their family member active. The perceptions of caregivers using the adult day care model differed little from those of caregivers who used adult day health services. One difference was that some caregivers saw the staff at the adult day care center as role models who taught them how to care for and accept dependent family members. Talking to family caregivers about their experiences with adult day services can provide practitioners with valuable insights about the services and activities that family caregivers find useful and those they may need to assist them in their efforts to care for impaired family members. Adult day providers need to understand what effect services and activities have on caregivers and family members to enable them to create programs that benefit both.
