What is an Adult Day Program (ADP)?
An Adult Day Program (ADP) is a non-medical adult day services center licensed by the CA Dept of Social Services Community Care Licensing Division (DSS-CCLD) to provide care to elderly persons and other adults with physical and/or cognitive impairments who require personal care services, protective supervision or assistance in activities of daily living on less than a 24-hour basis.
Services are provided according to an individual plan of care in a structured, comprehensive program that offers therapeutic activities tailored to the individual's abilities; nutrition services; basic health monitoring; transportation corrdination; and respite and support for families. ADP centers are not reimbursed by Medi-Cal.
Prospective Adult Day Program providers must first attend an orientation conducted by DSS-CCLD in order to receive an application for ADP center licensure. Visit the CA Dept of Social Services Web site for the number to call for the next orientation scheduled in your area. View list of Community Care Licensing Regional Offices.
