Final Answer :
Explanation :
Services offered by adult day care centers allow family members to maintain their lifestyles and employment and still provide home care for their relatives.A hospice is a system of family-centered care that allows patients to live and remain at home with comfort,independence,and dignity while alleviating the strains caused by terminal illness; this is inappropriate because the widow does not have a terminal illness.Rehabilitation is the use of multiple therapies such as physical,psychological,occupational,speech,and social services to help restore a person to the fullest physical,mental,social,vocational,and economic usefulness possible; this is not appropriate because the widow can provide self-care.A nursing center is a nursing home; it is too early for this because the widow can provide self-care.
