Extending Easter Seals' expertise, Easter Seals adult day services meet daytime needs of adults with disabilities and older adults while promoting their dignity and independence. Easter Seals partners with families to ensure a continuation of their high-standards of care.
Over the next decade, over 71 million Americans will be 65 years of age and older. With the increasing numbers of older persons and persons with lifelong disabilities living longer, we will see a broader demand for home and community-based services. These services will help manage activities of daily living that may be limited as a result of acute or chronic conditions, and will keep people integrated in their communities.
Easterseals programs such as adult day services, personal attendant services, services for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer's, wellness programs and support for family caregivers help people live as independently as possible for as long as possible.
