Hours of Operation

Normal business hours for ADHC centers are Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Closing and Inclement Weather

If Fairfax County Government offices are closed, the centers also will be closed. When Fairfax County public schools are delayed or closed, the centers' hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Announcements are made on local television and radio stations and cable channel 16. If a participant arrives at a center before at least two staff members are there, he or she will not be able to enter the center per our licensing regulations. During inclement weather, please call the center to make sure staff is available to receive clients.

Fastran will not provide transportation if Fairfax County schools are closed or have a delayed opening. If schools will be closing early Fastran will pick up early at the centers.

If the centers will be closing early due to poor weather conditions, staff will contact the emergency number on file for a participant. 

Support and Education for Caregivers

The ADHC program provides ongoing support groups and educational programs for caregivers. Staff is always available to help address specific caregiving concerns.

The support groups are led by nurses from the centers and are designed to provide an opportunity for caregiver support and networking. You are welcome to attend a support group even if you do not have a family member enrolled in ADHC. Please contact the individual ADHC center for more information.

Emergency Preparedness

Each ADHC center has an Emergency Response Plan that has been designed specifically for that facility. (See Emergency Planning Guidance for Medical and Patient Care Facilities PDF icon.)

Both residents as well as their families should be mindful and inquire about a facility's emergency preparedness plan regarding the following:

  • The actual plan
  • Questions about staffing
  • Supplies
  • Resident information
  • Coordination with other resources
  • The role of the family

It is important for each family in our community to be prepared for all types of emergencies. If you haven't already, please learn more about preparing yourself and your family for emergencies.
