What is the purpose of adult day services?

(1) WAC 388-71-0702 through 388-71-0776 contains the eligibility requirements for community options program entry system (COPES) waiver, roads to community living (RCL), or other agency approved funding for adult day care and adult day health services.
(2) These rules also contain the requirements that apply to adult day care and adult day health centers that contract with the department, area agency on aging, other department designee to provide COPES waiver and RCL services to department clients, and adult day centers who are owned and operate on a private pay basis. Nothing in these rules may be construed as requiring the department, an area agency on aging, or other designee to contract with an adult day care or adult day health center.
(3) An adult day center is a community-based program designed to meet the needs of adults with impairments through individualized goal specific plans of care. This type of structured, comprehensive, nonresidential program provides a variety of health, social, and related support services in a protective setting. Adult day centers support families and caregivers with the following goals:
(a) Provide an opportunity for the client to live in his or her community;
(b) Provide the client with clinical and nonclinical services to meet unmet needs;
(c) Assist the client to maintain maximum independence in his or her activities of daily living (ADL); and
(d) Measure the client's progress through individualized interventions, as outlined in his or her negotiated care plan.
(4) An adult day center evaluates the client's needs and offers services with goal specific interventions to meet those needs and enhance his or her quality of life. The client attends on a scheduled and planned basis. The adult day center evaluates potential clients to determine if center is able to meet their identified needs. Nothing in this generic description may be construed to modify the specific services or eligibility requirements referenced in this chapter of adult day care and adult day health.
