Louisiana Adult Day Care Information

Louisiana is the only state that defines adult day care as a service only for persons with developmental disabilities rather than for “older persons with disabilities.” An adult day care center is any place that serves, for a portion of a 24-hour day, 10 or more functionally impaired adults. The state licenses both adult day care and adult day health care and offers licensing with six distinct types of licensed services settings. The different types of settings relate to the capacities of the clients whom they serve.

Louisiana Adult Day Care Minimum Standards

Louisiana Adult Day Care minimum standards include these guidelines: medication administration and oversight must be provided by either a licensed, registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse. The state requires a staff to participant ratio of 1:9. Where certification or licensing standards exist for professional staff, Louisiana requires that, staff in those positions must possess current certifications/licenses and continued education training.

Adult day care providers must provide orientation and annual training for all employees. Topics for training may include instruction in the specific responsibilities of the employee’s job/job description, emergency disaster plan/evacuation plans, and the detection and reporting of suspected abuse, neglect, and exploitation and the reporting of complaints and critical incidents. In addition, all direct care employees are required to be certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid upon hire, maintain documentation of certification or be re-certified annually. The Department of Health and Hospitals is required to conduct inspections for ADHC Licensing. In addition, the department, also, investigates any report of mistreatment of clients (abuse, neglect, and exploitation) and any person, agency, or organization suspected of operating an adult day care facility without a license.
