Webinar | From Regulations to Application, Strategies for a Successful Adult Day Program Start

12:00 PM (Pacific) | Host: National Adult Day Services Association (NADSA)
NADSA Members: $99 | Non-members: $149 | REGISTER

Interested in opening an ADS center, but don’t know where to start, stumped at the application process wondering if your center will be a success and how it could be funded? This is the place to start. In this session, we will discuss the importance of demographics and how to check these, as well as the type of client you choose to serve, based on demographics and community need. We will discuss who to contact to complete the application, the difference between licensing and certification, and which one(s) you may need to build the center of your dreams. We will discuss a basic day at an Adult Day Center, both a health and a social model. We will discuss regulations, where to find them and how to ensure your center is compliant from the very start. We’ll discuss marketing opportunities and the need to diversify your funding sources. There will be a question and answer period provided.


  1. Attendees will understand the difference between licensure and certification and where to check to see if their state and program requires one, both or neither.
  2. Attendees will understand how to check area demographics and will be introduced to the Weiler Model to determine how many in that demographic are likely to choose ADS.
  3. Attendees will understand the options for ADS funding that would be anticipated during the formation and licensing/certification of the entity.
  4. Attendees will learn the importance of understanding their state and federal regulations that pertain to them, and how to find them.
  5. Attendees will learn about the application process required for most states to open a center.

Conference | Aging in America | New Orleans

HOST: American Society on Aging

The American Society on Aging's Aging in America Conference is a great opportunity to learn best practices and gain insights from leaders in the field about the current state of aging in America. The wide array of topics covered at the conference represents the breadth of the aging experience and provides knowledge and insights to those who work along the continuum of care and service to older adults and their families.

Many of the sessions at this year's conference highlight the importance of elder justice and awareness of mistreatment, in addition to critical issues in aging policy.

These are critical times and the conference is a great opportunity for us to come together on behalf of ourselves, the older adults we serve, and their families.
