Adult Day Health
“The goal of Adult Day Health (ADH) services is to use the group environment to foster growth and challenge the PARTICIPANT to increase independence and become more involved in the community. Adult Day Health (ADH) services should support individual decision-making and result in the achievement of PARTICIPANT’S person-centered goals as identified in the Plan of Care (POC).
Adult Day Health includes:
Offering opportunities for meaningful participation in community activities;
Developing associations with community members;
Discovering ways for PARTICIPANTS to make contributions;
Establishing roles of leadership and partnership within one’s community.
Adult Day Health services are furnished six (6) or more hours per day on a regularly scheduled basis, for one or more days per week, in a community. Meals provided as part of these services shall not constitute a “full nutritional regimen” (3 meals per day). Recommendations of specialized therapies as indicated in the Plan of Care (POC) could be incorporated within this service. Adult Day Health (ADH) services may provide more than one-to-one direct service worker coverage. Transportation between the individual’s place of residence and the Adult Day Health (ADH) settings will be provided as a component part of the Adult Day Health (ADH) services, as would transportation to community settings during Adult Day Health (ADH). Adult Day Health (ADH) services shall be provided by the appropriate level of direct support worker and shall be consistent with the service needs of the PARTICIPANT.”
