Private family homes to pro- vide day care for adults are being sought by the Covington County Department of Pen- sions and Security, Mrs. Vir- ginia Mills, agency director, said recently. "We are looking for indivi- duals and families with the abi- lity and the desire to care for elderly or slightly disabled adults in their homes during the day," Mrs. Mills explained. "Those approved for day care and will have the satisfaction of performing a needed com- munity service."

A good day care program, she stated, includes a nutri- tious meal, leisure-time ac- tivities, limited health care, a chance for socialization, and rest periods. "Adults requiring nursing care would not be approved for day care," Mrs. Mills empha- sized, "but some might need help in being reminded to take medicine, for instance, or in following a special diet." Homes providing day care must be approved by the Coun- ty Department of Pensions and Security. One-person house- holds are considered. Requirements for providing day care relate primarily to the home's accessibility to the adults served, the ability of fa- mily members to provide pro- per care, and whether the home conforms to local sanitation, fire protection and building sa- fety regulations. Mrs. Mills said that workers at the Department of Pensions and Security, located at Cres- cent Street, -#ill be glad topro- vide applications and further information to families in- terested in providing adult day care.
