Adult care is a broad term that covers a range of personal care services for people above 18 years of age. Adult care may be provided to those with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, or several chronic conditions. Adult care is also provided to patients recovering from a serious injury or illness.
The primary aim of adult care is to enhance the quality of life. Adult care has assumed a great significance in recent years with the risen severity and spread of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and obesity that have become one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., reportedly killing nearly 900,000 people every year.

FAQsQ. What conditions are considered for chronic care management and complex chronic care management services?
Ans. A patient must have two or more chronic conditions that place the patient at significant risk of death, acute exacerbation/decompensation, or functional decline. Such conditions are, but not limited to, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, asthma, cancer, depression, diabetes, ischemic heart disease, and osteoporosis.Q. What does a typical adult care plan entail?
Ans. A comprehensive adult care plan consists of a list of problems, expected outcome and prognosis, measurable treatment goals, symptom management, planned interventions, medication management, community/social services ordered, coordination of other agencies and specialist services, etc. The staff at EPIC will obtain this information from the patient, the patient’s care team, and the patient’s active providers. The patient's care plan is always available to the patient’s care team.Q. What are the self-management techniques under adult care?
Ans. Self-management techniques include:
- Using your mind to manage symptoms and emotions (distraction, positive thinking, relaxation)
- Fall prevention, improving balance
- Discuss ways to maintain and improve strength, flexibility, and endurance
- Making healthy food choices
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Effective communication with physicians, family, and friends
- Making informed treatment decisions
Ans. A healthy and balanced diet that involves special considerations for your disease is a valuable, not alternative, tool for self-management. A diet that is extreme, eliminates whole food groups, or concentrates entirely on supplements can be as destructive as the diet full of junk based on the excuse that you "deserve" these treats because you are suffering.Q. Why are so many chronic illnesses difficult to diagnose?
Ans. Chronic illnesses develop slowly over a period. Symptoms come and go, leaving patients wondering if something is wrong or if it's all in their head. When these patients finally do report symptoms to their physicians, the disease has usually been present for some time.Q. How is the treatment of chronic illness different from the treatment of acute illness?
Ans. There are three major ways in which the treatment of chronic illness and the treatment of acute illness differ. The first is the goal of treatment. The second is the difference in the relationship between medical professional and patient. The third is the ongoing responsibility of the patient for his or her own health.
