Adult Day Care Licensure and Certification Requirements-Virginia Mobile App
The State Board of Social Services is required by state law to prescribe standards for certain activities, services and facilities for adult day care centers to protect aged, infirm, or disabled adults who are away from their homes during a part of the day by: (1) ensuring that the activities, services, and facilities of adult day care centers are conducive to the well-being of the participants and (2) reducing risks in the caregiving environment.
How does it work?
Medicaid providers of adult day health care (ADHC) under the Home and Community-Based Elderly or Disabled Consumer-Direction (EDCD) Waiver must also be licensed by the Department of Social Services (DSS) and adhere to the DSS adult day care center standards summarized in this profile and shall comply with additional requirements in the provider manual developed by the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS). The Adult Day Care Licensure and Certification Requirements-Virginia mobile app, as well as our additional Adult Day Care Services apps, explain requirements for adult day care services.
