    Welcome



    Based on the discussions that took place during Phase 1 in 2016, Phase 2 of the County’s Lines of Business (LOB) exercise will focus on programs/services to be reviewed for improved efficiency and effectiveness. The Adult Day Health Care Program was one of many programs selected to be evaluated as part of the LOB Phase II process.

    In spite of the aging population over the last six years there has been a steady decline in ADHC enrollment. The average daily attendance (ADA) has dropped from 134 in FY 2011 (6 centers) to 90 in FY 2017 (4 centers). It is hoped that the Phase 2 review will help to better understand factors contributing to this decline. Additionally and more importantly we want to ensure that whatever model or models are recommended by the Steering Committee will be able to meet the current and future needs of county residents.
