Dr. Holly Dabelko-Schoeny, assistant professor at The Ohio State University College of Social Work, was recently interviewed by The Columbus Dispatch and WTVN radio regarding a new study produced in collaboration with Ohio State, MetLife, and the National Adult Day Services Association (NADSA).
Findings show that ADS centers serve over a quarter of a million people—an increase of more than 100,000 since 2002. As reported in The MetLife Study of Adult Day Services: Providing Support to Individuals and Their Family Caregivers, there are more than 4,600 ADS centers nationwide, a 35 percent increase in eight years. Approximately, 29 percent of the centers have waiting lists, more than half of the participants are women (58 percent), and 30 percent are under age 65.
