For all Day Centers out there in Wisconsin...

I am pleased to announce that this year the Wisconsin Adult Day Services Association will be having a half day conference on September 24th from 1pm to 4 pm in the Madison area.

We will be presenting information on the issues and challenges with the new Home and Community Based regulations. We will also have updates on our revised State Certification rules and their upcoming implementation. This will include an overview of the changes within those regulations. We are planning on having Division of Quality Assurance staff presenting with us.

Other items will include a quick annual meeting of WADSA including election of new Board members. This training and meeting will be open to all Center staff, members and non-members. It is an important time to become as up to date as possible with all of the changes and challenges we are all facing. More information will be coming soon on the details and location.

Information on the Corona pandemic affecting day centers.

Fellow adult day services providers, as you have probably seen today the Wisconsin Governor Evers orders to deal with the Corona pandemic will allow us to keep our services open if we want and need that to happen. Proper care should be taken to protect our participants and our employees and WADSA strongly suggests that only those participants who cannot be taken care of at home, be allowed to attend. As this situation is changing daily, we may be facing other restrictions or parameters at any time. Do your utmost to make the best decision for your individual facilities and communities.
If you are closing or have made significant changes in your operation, the State Division of Quality Assurance would like to be informed. You can reach them at 608-266-8481.
WADSA has asked for additional direction from the Division of Quality Assurance and we are waiting for their feedback. They are aware of our collective concerns and trying to get us answers that are more specific. When we hear anything additional from the State, we will pass it along. In the meanwhile, we will try to keep any helpful information on the WADSA website.

Caregivers neglect their own health to care for others

Our member programs remain concerned about caregivers ability to take care of their own needs while caring for others. Adult Day Services can be the answer for respite that so many need so they can function as the caregiver and keep their loved one at home longer.
NBC News story addresses the impact that caregivers neglecting their own health can have overall.
