Why should I get my center involved with the Wisconsin Adult Day Services Association?
Diana Brown, President WADSA
A small but dedicated group of Board members has been working on behalf of all centers in Wisconsin since the early 1980’s. You may be familiar with our annual conference, or our website wadsa.org. Our membership fees allow you to join both WADSA and the National Adult Day Services Association at a discounted rate. This fall the national conference will be in Minnesota, so it is a great chance to attend and learn from what others are doing across the country.
However, most importantly for centers here in Wisconsin is the revision of our State Certification rules, which has started to proceed. Currently the Division of Quality Assurance has been charged by the State to establish permanent rules for the regulation of adult day centers who choose to accept participants who are funded by Medicare Waiver or Family Care. The Division has created the first draft of our new rules and four WADSA Board members have been invited to give input as well as two WADSA members and several other stakeholders. As a State Association, our job is to represent you, but many of you have not become WADSA members. Please support our efforts by supporting WADSA. Join with us, communicate with us, attend our upcoming conference and become educated on the new rules coming.
Individual membership to WADSA is $125.
WADSA/NADSA joint membership is $350.

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.
