Hazel Dunning talks freely about why she left her Florida home and moved in with her daughter in Orange several years ago. "I couldn't take care of myself," Dunning said. "Old age, I guess." Dunning's daughter and son-in-law, Judy and Vic Hill, don't feel that they can comfortably leave the 77-year-old woman alone while they work, shop and conduct their lives.

Every weekday morning at 7:30, before Hans goes to work, he drops Kathie off at her day-care center in Orange. He is exceedingly gentle with her, holding her hand, guiding her slowly from the car to the two-room facility on the grounds of St. Paul's Lutheran Church. The activity room is already set up for the day. The red plastic leis and pictures of Hawaiian seascapes are up on the walls.

The number of adult day care centers, advocates say, are still far too few, even though the "graying" of America has accelerated dramatically. Nationally, there are only about 1,500 such centers for the "fragile elderly," according to the Washington-based National Institute on Adult Daycare. In California, there are but 416 state-licensed centers serving about 20,000 elderly.

August 31, 1989 | PATRICK MOTT, Patrick Mott is a regular contributor to Orange County Life.
In the not-so-distant past, volunteerism meant being a den mother. It meant manning the booth at the church bake sale for an hour on Sunday, or coaching Little League or helping out with the costumes for the school Christmas play. It was something done by people with a lot of time on their hands, something to fill an otherwise uneventful day, a substitute for afternoon soap operas. And it was something that, for the most part, was not done by people sprinting down the career track.

Luz Co slowly pedaled on a stationary bicycle one morning recently at the South Orange County Adult Day Health Care Center in San Clemente. Her face showed a grim determination. A year ago, the 73-year-old Laguna Hills woman lost the use of her arms and legs following a stroke. When Co began coming to this San Clemente facility for the frail elderly earlier this year, she recalls that she was confined most of the time to a wheelchair.
