What is adult day care?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Adult day care."

Adult day care is what it sounds like, and not some kind of punch line. Like child day care, it's where you take a family member to be looked after for a day, though in this case the family member is a parent who is physically or mentally disabled. As with the facilities for tots, adult day care centers offer structured programs that may include arts and crafts, entertainment, mentally stimulating games and mild exercise.

When you've got to go to work and you've got a mom or dad who needs looking after, you might want to look into adult day care.
