Kansas Adult Day Care Information
In Kansas, Adult Day Care is defined as any adult care home facility that operates fewer than 24 hours a day caring for individuals who are not related within the third degree of relationship to the operator or owner by blood or marriage. In addition, those individuals, due to functional impairment, are in need of supervision or assistance with activities of daily living.
Kansas Adult Day Care Minimum Standards
The Kansas Department on Aging licenses adult day care facilities under Kansas Department on Aging Regulations 28-39-275 – 28-39-291. Some requirements for adult care homes (39-144, 145a, 147, and 148) apply to adult day care providers. Some of the requirements include: that adult day care programs are not permitted to either enroll or retain a client who is Incontinent and will not participate in management of their incontinence, are immobile, have any condition requiring two person transfer, have any behavior symtom that exceeds manageability, or have a clinical condition that requires the use of physical restraints (unless their negotiated service agreement includes resources to meet their needs). An individual may be discharged in order to protect the resident's welfare, if the participant's needs cannot be met in the current setting, or to protect the safety or health of other participants and staff.
Kansas does not specify a minimum or maximum number of hours that an adult day care can be operated other than that it must be fewer than 24 hours a day. If an assessment by a physician or licensed nurse determines that a client can safely and accurately self administer their own medication then they must be allowed to do so. The staff may remind residents to take their medication. The state of Kansas requires all adult day care facilities to provide orientation to new employees in addition to regular in service education for all employees. Training must be designed to ensure that services provided assist residents to attain and maintain their individuality, autonomy, dignity, independence, and ability to make choices. Relevant topics for in service education includes: principles of adult day care, fire safety, disaster procedures, prevention of abuse, accident prevention, resident rights and infection control. In Kansas, requirements regarding inspection of adult day programs are the same as for any adult care homes. It is required that all adult day care facilities must provide immediate access to any resident when requested by a representative of the secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment or the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services.
