Adult day care services are community-based group programs designed to support adults' personal independence by promoting their social, physical, and emotional well-being through an individual plan of care. Nurses are in a prime position to care for this population because they deliver holistic care and promote health. Scant literature is available that addresses how nurses provide care for this population. The purpose of this article is to describe how nurses can care for the adult day care population and to present an illustrative case study that demonstrates how nurses can positively affect the health of older adult day care clients. © 2004 Elsevier Inc.
