Adult Day Services offer community-based non-residential supports to assist adults with physical and/or cognitive impairments to remain as active in their communities as possible. Adult day centers provide a safe, supportive environment where people can come during the day and receive a range of professional health, social and therapeutic services, as well as a nutritious meal and valuable social interaction. Adult day services also provide respite, support and education to family members and caregivers.
The Adult Services Division (ASD) is responsible for certifying 14 Adult Day providers across the state and for providing quality assurance and improvement support as needed. Eligible participants receive funding for Adult Day Services through the Choices for Care program or the Medicaid Adult Day Health Rehab Services (DHRS) program. People also pay privately based on a sliding fee scale.
