What are the requirements for Adult Day Health Care?
A person that is not home-bound and requires supervision or monitoring; preventive, therapeutic rehabilitative care, among others, but does not require 24 hour a day inpatient care or services. An assessment called an “RAI” (Registrant Assessment Instrument) must be completed by a Registered Nurse from our facility in addition to your physician's agreement that there is a need. A completed history and physical must be sent from your physician's office to us prior to admission. There must be a source of payment from one of the following:
What is Adult Day Health Care?
A community based long term care program that provides comprehensive health care services in a congregate day setting. Registrant needs are assessed and met through an individualized plan of care that is developed and implemented by an interdisciplinary team of medical professionals.
What services are provided?
We are staffed with medical professionals, including Licensed Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, NYS Certified Nurses Aides with 100 hours of training, Registered Dieticians, Licensed Social Workers, professional Rehabilitation Therapists and Certified Recreational Therapists.
What is the benefit of attending ADHC?
The program of comprehensive, integrated care leads to stabilization of chronic health conditions and reduced incidence of costly hospitalizations, physician and emergency room visits. Registrants are provided with the medical and social services they need to remain at home.
Who is eligible?
Adult Day Health Care is designed to meet the health care needs of chronically ill, frail elderly and disabled adults who require certain primary, preventative, diagnostic, therapeutic, rehabilitative or palliative services.
How do you enroll?
The ADHC program RN will conduct a comprehensive assessment to identify the individual’s health care needs and the type and intensity of services required. The individual will be admitted if it is the professional opinion of the RN, the individual’s personal physician, the other interdisciplinary staff, the Registrant and the caregiver that his/her assessed needs can be satisfactorily met, either entirely or in part, by the delivery of services in the ADHC program. Medical orders are written by the personal physician regarding the Registrant’s care in the adult day health program. The appropriate number of days to attend is determined by the same interdisciplinary team so that optimum outcomes can be achieved. In some instances, the local department of social services or other approving agency must approve the service for transportation purposes. Approval must be obtained when a Registrant is enrolled in the Long Term Home Health Care program or a managed long term care program applies for admission to the ADHC program. This eliminates duplication of services and promotes effective use of Medicaid funds.
How do you pay?
An individual must be Medicaid eligible, or willing to pay privately or have a private insurance source.
When will a person consider Adult Day Health Care services?
An individual might seek the services of a medical model program: If existing and necessary caregiver support is eliminated or compromised; when a medical condition develops/new diagnosis is rendered requiring acute or chronic medical care; following an accident or acute episode; if an existing condition is exacerbated; when hospice care is required; if restorative therapy is needed following an acute episode; during the end stage of a disease process
Is transportation available?
Yes. Door to door transportation to and from the Adult Day Health Center is available. This permits individuals who need physical assistance or are wheelchair bound to leave the isolation of their home and join a group settings.
Adult Day Care
San Simeon's Adult Day Health Care program, opened in May 2010, provides the medical care you need during the day so you can sleep comfortable in your own bed at night. Our professionals work with your doctor to manage your medical needs while offering case management, social work, nutritional counselling, and professional nursing. You will have access to on-site salon services and specialists such as the podiatrist, dentist, optometrist, physical and occupational therapists as well as a range of recreational programs. The professional nursing staff can provide care for clients with a wide range of medical conditions associated with chronic illness and/or aging, including Alzheimer's, dementia, diabetes, and Parkinson's disease.
In order to qualify for participation at San Simeon's Adult Day Health Care, the potential Registrant must be assessed by a Registered Nurse Assessor provided by our program. Physician certification is also required and he/she will determine if you are eligible for admission after being interviewed by the facility RN. Registrants must be in need of continuous services for a period of 30 days from the date of assessment and attend no less than one day a week for a period of 4 weeks, as mandated by NYS DOH. We accept Private Resources, Medicaid, Long Term Insurance, and other insurances where applicable.

Our Program Director can review payment options, including available resources to help with Medicaid applications in conjunction with aiding you in this next step for you or your loved one’s future while “keeping families together longer.” We can also review your options for home care resources and case management.
