Developing Adult Day Centers: What You Need to Know
The manual “Developing Adult Day Services in Michigan: What You Need to Know” was developed by the Michigan Adult Day Services Association (MADSA), to respond to the growing number of inquiries received from individuals and organizations interested in starting adult day service centers. Its purpose is to provide those new to the field with basic issues for consideration in developing and operating adult day service centers in Michigan. This is a great read for people looking for general info and for those thinking about attending the course, which expands on all the topics covered here. The publication will be emailed in PDF format.
