We examined a nationally representative sample of 60 adult day care centers to describe the state of this evolving care modality after a decade's growth. Results indicate that day care centers can be categorized into three models of care, each of which serves a distinctive subpopulation. Model appropriateness was tested with analysis of variance of differences in participant characteristics. Services, staffing, costs, and other program features are contrasted among the three models.
