What is it?

Adult Day Care is a program available to persons aged 60 and older to provide health and social services in a community-based setting.  Services are generally furnished on a regular basis for four or more hours per day, one or more days per week. 

This program may be available to individuals who are not yet 60, if the service planning team deems day habilitation or employment services to be inappropriate because the individual is medically fragile.

Transportation between the participant's home and the adult day care center is provided and included in the rate paid to providers of adult day care.
