Adult day health care (ADHC) is a community based long term care program that provides comprehensive health care services, in a congregate of 25 to 40 people day setting. Registrant needs are assessed and met throughout an individualized plan of care that is developed and implemented by an interdisciplinary team of professionals, including the registrants' personal community physician.
Registrants are given nursing, case management, clinical management, medical, diagnostic, social, rehabilitative, recreational, and personal care services on a routine or daily basis. Services are provided according to the assessed needs of the registrant, and range from monitoring, observing and maintaining individuals’ health status to aggressive interventions and utilization of resources.
ADHC programs are staffed with medical professionals, including licensed registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, CNA-certified nurse aides with 100 hours of training, activity staff and professional physical, occupational and speech therapists.
Registrants have all of their health care needs assessed and met, or arranged for, by the program. The program of comprehensive, integrated care leads to stabilization of chronic health conditions and reduced incidence of costly physician and emergency room visits. Registrants are provided with the medical and social services they need to remain at home and a part of the community.
ADHC is designed to meet the health care needs individuals who require certain primary, preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic, rehabilitative or palliative services.
The ADHC program nurse will conduct a comprehensive assessment to identify the individual's health care needs and the type and intensity of services required. The individual will be admitted if it is the professional opinion of the RN, the individual's personal physician, the other interdisciplinary staff, the registrant and the caregiver that his/her assessed needs can be satisfactorily met, either entirely or in part, by the delivery of services in the ADHC program.
The personal physician writes medical orders regarding the registrant's care in the adult day health program. The appropriate number of days to attend is determined by the same interdisciplinary team so that optimum outcomes can be achieved. In some instances, the local department of social services or other approving agency must approve the service for transportation purposes. Approval must also be obtained when a registrant enrolled in the Long Term Home Health Care program applies for admission to an ADHC program. This eliminates duplication of services and promotes effective use of Medicaid funds.
An individual must be willing to pay privately, be a Veteran, have a private long term care insurance or source that will pay for the service, i.e.: CCSP. Our daily rates are approx. $80.00 per day (roughly $10.00 per hour).
