Adult Day Services

Sub categories include:

Medical Model Adult Day Health programs offer health and rehabilitative services including nursing, recreational therapy, occupational, physical and speech therapy, personal care, nutrition and social services. These programs are licensed and monitored by New York State. They must be affiliated with a nursing home or hospital. Additional services may include medication assistance, hot meals, and referral for other services.
Social Model Adult Day programs offer a structured program of supervision, socialization, recreation, meals, and some assistance with personal care, but do not provide medical services such as nursing and rehabilitative services. Individuals who are socially isolated, confused and require minimal physical assistance are appropriate.
