Lisa L. Dwyer, M.P.H.; Lauren D. Harris-Kojetin, Ph.D.; and Roberto H. Valverde, M.P.H.

Key findings

Data from the National Study of Long-Term Care Providers
  • In 2012, more than one-third of participants in adult day services centers were younger than 65. A higher percentage of participants in nonprofit centers than in for-profit centers were younger than 65.
  • About one-half of participants in adult day services centers were non-Hispanic white persons. A higher percentage of participants in for-profit centers than in nonprofit centers were Hispanic or were non-Hispanic and of a race other than black or white.
  • Almost one-third of adult day services center participants had Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias, and about one-quarter had a developmental disability. A lower percentage of participants in for-profit than in nonprofit centers had Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias or a developmental disability.
The 4,800 adult day services centers nationwide provide a variety of services to their 273,200 participants, the majority of whom are older adults and women (1). The number of for-profit adult day services centers has grown in recent years (2). The 1,900 for-profit centers, representing 40% of centers nationally, served nearly one-half (47%) of center participants in 2012 (3). Using data from the National Study of Long-Term Care Providers, this report presents selected characteristics of adult day services center participants in 2012 and compares the characteristics of participants in for-profit centers with those in nonprofit centers. State-level estimates for characteristics presented in this data brief are available from: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nsltcp/nsltcp_products.htm.
