How to Start an Adult Day Center
Are you thinking about starting an adult day center?

Check out our publication "Developing Adult Day Centers." This booklet answers many of the common questions people have when they are thinking about developing a program in Michigan. For more information or to order, click on the publications tab.

MADSA also offers an extensive training to explore the pitfalls and perks of opening and operating an adult day center in Michigan. This is the best, most efficient way to get a realistic look at what it takes to operate a successful program. This course is taught by professionals who are currently working in this field.

There are two sessions to this training. Session #1 focuses on considerations when opening an adult day program and Session #2 focuses on the operational aspects of running a successful day program.

We do not currently have dates on the calendar for our next session. If there is enough interest, we may offer a training in the fall. If you are interested, email Carrie at mimadsa@gmail.com.


 
What is MADSA?
The Michigan Adult Day Services Association (MADSA) is a coalition of adult day service providers throughout the state of Michigan. MADSA’s mission is to promote and support the growth and development of high quality adult day services. MADSA offers a resource for service providers in addition to educators, researchers, advocates, volunteers and others who are involved in this field.


What Are Adult Day Centers?

Adult Day Centers are an invaluable resource for individuals and families dealing with dementia and other chronic health care concerns by offering health care services along with therapeutic recreational and social events on a daily basis. Adults of all ages in need of functional support attend Adult Day Centers to spend their days in a safe place while remaining at home in the evenings. Adult Day Centers provide needed comfort for participants and respite for family members and caregivers. Adult Day Centers provide safe, quality care for frail and vulnerable adults.

History of MADSA
The Michigan Adult Day Services Association is a voluntary, membership organization of those providing, interested in providing, or supporting adult day services in Michigan.  MADSA was established in 1978, by a small group of adult day center directors interested in networking, advocacy, marketing, sharing resources, and providing quality services while meeting established standards of care.  MADSA partners with the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging and local area agencies on aging to promote and ensure quality of adult day services throughout the state of Michigan.
