- 0My dad used to go to Adult Day Care three days a week. It gave my mom a break, and he thought he was going to a club; he loved it!
Does anyone know how I can find out about opening a Day Care Center for adults?

- 0Mar 5, '03 by renerianI know in ohio there are several types. one is a social model and one is a health care model where they do treatments and such. I know there are health care regulations and maybe your state health department can help you with that. If your thinking about accepting different payors such as a waivered program they have their own regulations.
- 0Mar 5, '03 by renerianGood place to start. Some of the day cares take Passport clients which is an Ohio waiver partially federal and partially state funded to keep people home and out of nursing homes. I worked an adult day care and loved it till I was laid off. What part of Ohio do you live in? I might be able to give you some names of people to talk to if you want-if it is in an area where I know some one. I am from NW Ohio but now live in Columbus.
- 0I'm in SW Ohio. After visiting three of these day care centers today, I think I'm shelving this idea. It seems some big Nursing Homes have gotten involved in this area. I saw some very nice facilities, and I know I can't compete with the services they're providing (all for Medicaid reimbursement)!

RNs can be independent medicaid providers in most states. Check out your state.
