Adult day care -- These centers provide seniors with care or company during the day. Some offer outings and social activities. Others may offer only health care.

Continuing care communities -- These retirement centers offer independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing all in one place. Healthy adults can live in apartments or homes until they need more help. They gradually get more assistance as they need it, without having to leave the community.

Respite care -- When you need a break, you can take a few hours or days off with the help of respite care. Your loved one can either get care at home or do a short-term stay in a skilled nursing facility.

Area Agency on Aging -- Your local agency offers free referrals to elder care services in your community. These include adult day care, in-home care, senior transportation, senior meals, and legal help. Find local information by calling 800-677-1116 or visiting www.eldercare.gov.
