Previews the literature concerning the objectives, models of service delivery, operating characteristics, activities, services and clients of Adult Day Care (ADC) Centres. Presents findings from a 3-phase study conducted in British Columbia. In phase 1, a 100% sample of B.C. ADCs provided information on their operating characteristics, activities and services. In phase 2, the characteristics of 479 new admissions to 22 ADCs were determined. Phase 3 focused on reasons for referring clients to ADC, why some referred clients do not attend and on the interface between ADCs and the province's Continuing Care Program.
