Which Adult Day Center Is Right for You and Your Family?

Learn how to pick the right adult day services for your family and look through the directory of New York State Adult Day Services Association (NYSADSA) members.
  • Identify adult day services in your area. See the Members page or contact NYSADSA for a list of centers in your area.
  • Contact the centers in your area. Arrange a visit and meet with the staff to determine if the center meets your needs: medical or social model, days and hours of operation, transportation, costs, and eligibility requirements.
  • Make a checklist for your visit that includes qualities such as a warm and welcoming environment and staff; comfortable, safe furniture; staff credentials; programs; and services offered.
  • If possible, talk to others who have used the center you are considering.

Take advantage of the opportunity to experience a trial day offered by many centers, to see how the participant might enjoy the day.
