Adult Day Services / Adult Day Health Services
Adult Day Care provides an organized program of services in a community group setting to promote social, physical and emotional wellbeing. These programs offer a variety of activities designed to meet the needs and interests of each older adult who receives care.
Costs to consumers vary. There is limited funding for adult day care from state and federal sources.
Providers that receive certain funding may have additional certification requirements. Certification is required for Adult Day Care/Adult Day Health providers, regardless of funding.
If you have questions about adult day care in a given county, contact:
- The local Department of Social Services

If you or your organization is interested in opening an Adult Day Care, or building, renovating, leasing or buying a building where you or your organization would like to provide Adult Day Care, please contact Glenda Artis.
