Adult Day Care Client Options



Older persons with disabilities—physical, develop- mental and cognitive—are needing and using home and community-based services in greater numbers.
This is partly because advances in medical treat- ment have enabled individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities to live much longer than ever before possible. Some ADS providers have responded to this unmet need by offering special- ized programming for older adults with mental retardation or developmental disabilities (MR/DD).
Recent federal and state initiatives have also increased the number of younger persons with dis- abilities receiving health and supportive services in their homes and communities. These include per- sons with physical, developmental, cognitive and psychiatric disabilities. Many of these individuals may be best served by a combination of adutl day and HCBS programs, while some may need very specialized services and supports. Attention should be given particularly to staffing and facility set-up when multiple target populations are mixed, such as older adults and younger adults with develop- mental or intellectual disabilities.

5 Reasons a Residential Care Home is Good for Your Parents

Residential Care homes are just that, residential homes. They are regular houses, in regular neighborhoods.  From the outside looking in you would never know that the home may be licensed by the state, exactly the same as a large assisted living facility seen in commercial areas.   Below are 5 reasons that residential care homes are a great alternative to a larger facility for your elderly loved one:
1. The homestyle environment gives seniors the opportunity to feel as they are still a part of a “family”.
2. The low resident to staff ratio allows caregivers to provide each senior with the one on one attention they deserve. Residents tend to have less incidents & falls because of the constant oversight by staff.
3. Most residential care homes offer “all inclusive” rates allowing the families & resident peace of mind & security when planning their financial future. The rate commonly includes meals, snacks, activities & assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, toileting, urinary or bowel incontinence care.
4. For those suffering from Alzheimer's disease or other dementias, a small residential care facility can be an ideal setting.  Many licensed homes are Memory Care Certified!  Furthermore, memory care residents tend to feel more comfortable in a home-like environment versus a large facility.
5. Daily or weekly respite care is usually offered & is a great way to test out the scenario before committing to a move. Respite is also a great way for the current caregiver to take some much deserved personal time perhaps a night out or a weekend away. 
In a residential care setting, seniors still have the ability to carry on as normal a life as they wish or are able.  They can go shopping and have friends and family visit whenever they want.  If given the choice, most families will choose residential care over nursing home care for these reasons. When investigating permanent options for your aging loved one, remember, a nursing home is NOT the only option.

More Grants

Construction and Renovation Grants

Federal grants are available for financing the construction and renovation of adult day care facilities in urban and rural areas. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funds the Community Development Block Grant program. These grants fund the construction and rehabilitation of adult day care and other health care and community facilities in cities and counties with more than 50,000 and 200,000 residents, respectively. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, sponsors the Community Facilities Grant Program. Grants are awarded to counties, towns and districts with less than 20,000 residents to build senior day care centers and equipment necessary to run the operations.

Food Services Grants

Senior day care operators can apply for grants to help with providing healthy meals. The Special Programs for the Aging, funded by the Department of Health and Human Services awards grants covering the expenses of purchasing and providing nutritious meals to the elderly in day care and other congregate settings. The USDA also sponsors a grant program called the Child and Adult Care Food Program, which provides healthy meals and snacks to adults while they’re in day care.

Nonprofit Grants

National and regional grants are also available from nonprofit organizations to start senior day care center businesses. The Kresge Foundation awards grants over $300,000 on for major capital projects such as facility construction and renovation and equipment purchases. These are challenge grants, which means applicants are required to raise capital from other sources to match the foundation. In North Carolina, the The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust organization provides grants funding capital projects and equipment purchases for non-profit senior day care centers in rural areas throughout the state.

Health Equipment Grants

Grants from regional and national programs are available to owners of senior day care centers for the purchasing of medical equipment for their facilities. For example, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation awards grants to senior day care centers and other health care-related facilities in Utah to purchase equipment for their operations. The National Emergency Medical Association awards grants on a national scale for the purchase of health care equipment.
