Approximately 31% of adult day services centers had services to meet primarily social needs and some medical needs of participants, 16% had services to meet only social needs, 13% had services to meet primarily medical needs and some social needs, and 1% had services to meet only medical needs.

ONLY social/recreation needs— NO health/medical needs; b. PRIMARILY social/recreational needs and SOME health/medical needs; c. EQUALLY social/recreational and health/medical needs; d.
