  Adult Day Service  

diagonal image

Adult Day Service is designed especially for older people who want to remain in the community but who cannot be home alone during the day due to a physical, social and/or mental impairment. Adult day service also provides respite for family caregivers, especially those who are employed outside the home, and socialization for isolated adults. Services offered in adult day service centers include health monitoring, medication supervision, personal care and recreational/therapeutic activities. Nutritious lunches and snacks are served and special diets are provided.

Several centers may specialize in providing care to clients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders while others target specific ethnic populations.

Mandatory Background Checks: All adult day service providers are mandated to follow the requirements of Public Act 91-0598. No Adult Day Service provider shall knowingly hire any individual or retain an employee in an adult day service who has been convicted of committing or attempting to commit any of the crimes under the Criminal Code of 1961. The provider must initiate, on each applicant’s behalf, a Non-Fingerprint Criminal History Check upon a conditional offer of employment.
