Vermont Adult Day Care Information
In Vermont, adult day services provide an array of services to help older adults and adults with disabilities to remain as independent as possible in their own homes. Such services are provided in community-based, non-residential day centers. They are designed to create a safe, supportive environment in which people can access both health and social services.
Vermont’s rules indicate that participants cannot be discharged against their will unless the participant’s care needs exceed those an adult day center is certified to provide, the adult day center is unable to meet the participant’s assessed needs, or the client presents a threat to himself or herself, other participants or staff.
Vermont Adult Day Care Minimum Standards
Vermont requires each adult day center to be able to administer medications to its participants. Each center is required to have a medication management policy describing a center’s medication management practices. All practices must be in accordance with the Vermont State Nurse Practice Act and must be under the supervision of a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse under the direction of a registered nurse. The state requires a staff to participant ratio of 1:7.
All new adult day centers are required to contact the Division of Disability and Aging Services to schedule an initial certification visit. After the visit, the department shall complete a site certification assessment form after the visit, indicating that standards are either “met” or “unmet.” An adult day center must allow an unannounced site visit at any time to verify that the center is in compliance with the standards.
