Adult health centers are well worth saving
Sacramento Bee

On Friday, the Robertson Adult Day Health Care Center in Sacramento closed after 25 years, stranding 49 patients – some severely disabled, others elderly and frail – and their families.

Adult day care health programs provide places for fragile adults to socialize and exercise. Nurses monitor their health needs. Physical therapists keep them moving. Patients share meals, play games, garden or just talk.
