This thesis will present a field study of an adult day care center in an attempt to establish a new methodology which will address the different types of clients in the recent phenomenon of adult day care settings. Previous research and field study has only focused on adults within institutional settings or on the institutions themselves. Adult day care, on the other hand, has arisen as an alternate form of care which allows for greater flexibility and concern for clients' needs. This thesis, then, in differentiating adult day care from total institutions and in delineating the types of clients, will set the groundwork for a new theory which would address the evolving needs of the fragmented adult day care population.
