“A community-based program similar to adult day care but designed for elders and persons with disabilities who need a higher level of care, but can still benefit from receiving services in a group setting. In addition to the services of an Adult Day Care program, other services provided include physical, occupational and speech therapies; nursing supervision; monitoring of vital signs, blood glucose, blood pressure, and medications; assistance with bathroom visits; dietary counseling and supervision; psychological counseling; and an Individualized Plan of Care. All services are supervised by trained geriatric specialists.”
