Adult Day Services Service Definition

Adult Day Services (ADS) are community-based group programs designed to meet the needs of adults with impairments through individual plans of care. These structured, comprehensive, non-residential programs provide health, social, recreational, and therapeutic activities, supervision, support services, and personal care. Meals and/or nutritious snacks are required. The meals need not constitute the full daily nutritional regimen. However, each meal must meet one-third of the daily Recommended Dietary Allowance. These services must be provided in a congregate, protective setting in one of three available levels of service: Basic, Enhanced, or Intensive. 

Individuals attend Adult Day Services on a planned basis. A maximum of 12 hours per day shall be allowable. 

Adult Day Services may be used in conjunction with Transportation Services. 

Adult Day Services are available under the Family Supports Waiver and the Community Integration and Habilitation Waiver.
