The purpose of this study was to describe the quality of life (QOL) of current adult day center (ADC) clients and their family caregivers in one region of Canada. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 10 ADC clients and 10 caregivers. Data analysis used a modified constant comparative method. The major categories relating to QOL that emerged in the analysis included Physical Health and Well-Being, Social Networks/Relationships, Aging in Place, Safety, Respite, Activation, Respect and Inclusion, and Adequate Health Care Services. These themes are consistent with those of other studies of QOL of older adults. It was evident that ADCs played an important role in maintaining and improving the QOL of both the older adults and caregivers participating in this study.
