All persons have the right to a quality life. An essential part of a quality life for the elderly or chronically ill person is the opportunity for care in the least restrictive setting. Adult day services are an option in the long-term care continuum for those who want to remain in their homes.
At adult day services, individuals receive professional services ranging from social activities and therapeutic recreation to nursing care and rehabilitation services. Adult day services are an innovative way to organize and blend traditional health and social services utilizing a group setting and an individualized plan of care.
The Connecticut Association of Adult Day Services, Inc. is authorized by the Connecticut Department of Social Services to conduct and administer a program of peer review. This is the key mechanism through which quality standards are ensured.
