Abstract
Using data from a national survey of adult day care centers, it was found that a typical center had revenues of approximately $140,000 and expenses that were slightly higher. Most of the revenue was from Federal sources, with Medicaid being the largest single source. The median cost per participant day was $29.50, over one-half of which was attributable to labor expenses. To the extent that adult day care programs can better utilize their capacity, considerable savings could be made in cost per participant day.
