Abstract
In 1979, Adult Day Care became a part of the B.C. Ministry of Health's Continuing Care Program. By 1989, there were 49 centres in operation in the province and it was felt timely to undertake a comprehensive review of the Adult Day Care component of the Continuing Care Program. As part of that review and as an aid for future planning, the Simon Fraser University Gerontology Research Centre was commissioned to conduct a study that would provide information concerning: 1. activities and services provided by the 49 centres; 2. characteristics of the clients currently being served; 3. reasons clients are referred to Adult Day Care; 4. reasons some referred clients do not attend; and 5. the referral process and the interface between the Long Term Care Program and Adult Day Care.
