Skyrocketing demand for alternatives to nursing homes in Anne Arundel has prompted Woods Adult Day Care Center to seek $1 million in county and state money to built a second center in Millersville.But state belt-tightening, which has already squeezed the Severn center and led to months-long waiting lists for some seniors, also could quash the private non-profit agency's plans.Woods wants to build a $1.2 million, 75-patient center in the Cloverleaf Business Park near Route 3 and Old Mill Road by next spring.

An 87-year-old woman being transported from a West Baltimore adult day-care center Monday was left overnight in a van - apparently overlooked by the driver. "It's absolutely outrageous," city Health Commissioner Dr. Peter L. Beilenson said last night. "When you're driving a van for the elderly or disabled, you count how many you take in and how many get off. It's not rocket science." According to Beilenson, the driver left Raven's Medical Adult Day Care Center at 5:30 p.m. with several elderly passengers - including the woman, who was believed to have fallen asleep in the back.

The retired shopkeeper doesn't let her age get in the way of having fun at Friends Place, an adult day service that caters to people with memory loss. Adult day services - also called adult day care centers - occupy a little-known but growing niche in care giving. The programs are for frail or mentally impaired people who can't be left alone during the day but don't yet need an assisted-living center or nursing home.
