A DISCLAIMER FROM THE NEW YORK STATE ADULT DAY SERVICES ASSOCIATION: The guidance provided below has not been approved by any New York State agency and programs will open at their own risk.  

We understand that as more communities across the country begin to re-open in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 Health Crisis, many Social Adult Day Care (SADC) programs and other respite providers are also planning to resume services. The guidelines provided below are designed to assist providers, as well as family caregivers, with careful and thoughtful planning and implementation strategies to provide and receive social adult day care as safely as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The New York State Adult Day Services Association wants to emphasize that the information from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Local Public Health Departments should be your primary source for guidance on COVID-19 and other health-related issues. It is important to closely monitor local guidance and consult with your healthcare professionals to ensure your health and safety.

ATTENTION NYC PROGRAMS: The New York City Department for the Aging Social Adult Day Care (SADC) Ombuds Office and the New York State Adult Day Services Association are continuing to monitor the rapidly changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Currently, the NYC Emergency Executive Order 100 remains in effect regarding all older adult congregate centers operating in NYC.

What does this mean? At this time, ALL SADC centers in New York City remain closed until further notice.


WEBINAR RECORDING ALERT: On April 15, 2021 NYSADSA hosted a webinar called "SADC Re-Opening: What to Expect.'" The webinar has been recorded and is available to view HERE (you will be required to fill out a form prior to viewing).

This site is currently being updated with current policies and will be active as soon as they are finalized.

Thank you.
