Adult Day Care

Adult day programs are designed to address the needs of our states aging and disabled populations. The programs take a holistic approach to the person by tailoring services to meet the individuals needs. Adult day programs are preventive oriented and cost efficient.

Who is eligible for adult day programs?

Adult day programs accept participants from the aging and disabled populations. Referrals can be made from a variety of sources, however, if the participant is a Medicaid recipient, services must be authorized through DHHSs Community Long Term Care or the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs.

What services do adult day programs provide?

Programs can range from case management, assistance with activities of daily living to social interaction. Adult day programs have planned activities, field trips, staff to assist with bathing and other hygiene needs, nursing staff to assist with medicine management, medical monitoring, dressing and wound care and care coordination with the primary health care provider. Most adult day programs provide door-to-door transportation to and from the facility. Each adult day care program must have a registered nurse on staff as well as nursing assistants based on the number of participants. Adult day programs are required to offer a nutritious lunch and snack. Some programs also offer other meals or assistance with eating breakfast.

When are programs available to participants?

Adult day programs are required to provide for a minimum stay of five hours. Most centers are available to accept participants Monday through Friday as early as 7:30 a.m., and services are provided until 5:30 p.m. Some centers operate from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. while others may operate from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

Adult day programs are available throughout the state.

Why should adult day programs be a priority for our state?

Adult day services are very cost efficient. Adult day is an excellent bang for the buck given that each participant receives a lunch, a snack and a laundry list of services tailored to his/her needs. Adult day services provide an excellent opportunity for seniors and disabled adults, who would otherwise be forced into institutional or nursing home care, to remain at home with family and loved ones. Adult day provides an opportunity to age in place, live the sunset years of ones life with dignity surrounded by loved ones and eases the workload of the caregiver.
