    for adults or to adults

    Which one is correct?

    We provide services in a supervised residential care setting to adults requiring assistance in their day-to-day living.

    Re: for adults or to adults

    Both are possible. I much prefer the second one.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: for adults or to adults

    Jmapili, please use a larger font in future. It's difficult to read such tiny words. It's also better to post in black, not pale grey as that can also be hard to see. I've edited your post to make it readable.
    I've removed the "centre justification" from your post and changed it all to "left justification". That is how most posts should be made.
    Thanks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: for adults or to adults

    If you're copying and pasting, and using a system that has a right-click, you can choose Paste as plain text, which will remove the source formatting and paste it in the standard form used by the forum software, thus avoiding text too small to read. If not, you can also highlight the text you have pasted and click on the Remove Formatting button, which is the second from the left and will do the same.
