Adult Day Services
Adult Day Services provides an organized program in a community group setting to promote social, physical and emotional well being. 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 as 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 Services providers regardless of funding.
