Until last week, Adult Day Health Care, a vital state program that helps keep frail elderly in their homes and out of expensive nursing homes, was headed for extinction. Because of state budget cuts, some 300 centers across the state were to close Dec. 1.

The threatened closures made no sense either on fiscal or humanitarian grounds. The state’s burgeoning populations of fragile adults go to these centers to socialize and exercise.
