There Are Only 4 Simple Steps to Enroll in Adult Day Health Care
1. Schedule Admissions Meeting
When you are ready to get started with enrolling your loved one, call us, email us or complete our online contact form to schedule an admissions meeting, or simply reach out directly to your local Adult Day Health Care Center in Herndon Harbor, Lewinsville, Lincolnia or Mount Vernon directly. The nursing director will complete a nursing assessment and discuss your needs so we can develop an individualized care plan. The nursing director will also review the logistics of enrollment, which include financial information, transportation options and center program details.
2. Complete Essential Forms
- Physical Exam and Tuberculosis (TB) Screenings are completed by the participant’s physician in advance of the admissions meeting. These documents must be dated within 30 days of the participant’s first day at our center.
- Social History and Emergency Contact Information are completed by the caregiver prior to the participant’s first day at our center.
3. Organize Financial Information
Adult Day Health Care offers a sliding fee scale based on the participant’s income plus two percent of assets excluding the participant’s home. We determine daily fees and transportation fees based on income. Financial and insurance documentation will be reviewed at the admissions meeting and a fee estimate provided.
4. Determine Transportation
Most participants use Fastran, a Medicaid transportation provider, or family. Transportation is hand-to-hand, meaning that your loved one is walked into our center and escorted back to their transport at the end of the day.
Documents Families Should Bring to the Admissions Meeting

- Copy of tax return, latest bank statement (checking and savings), other relevant income information (social security income, pension and other assets such as money markets, trust funds).
