Adult Day Services

Adult Day Services helps individuals to remain living in their own home for as long as possible. Through structured activities and services, Adult Day Services provide care and supervision for part of the day outside of the home. This service enables caregivers to work or pursue other daytime activities while continuing to care for the care receiver at home.


Adult Day Services staff develop an Individual Plan of Care to meet the needs of the individual by developing activities and services. The Adult Day offers a nutritious lunch and snacks during the day. Limited nursing services such as health screening, blood pressure check, medication management and a general assessment of the individual’s needs may be provided.


Adult Day Services Programs can be located within a senior center, church, assisted living, nursing facility, hospital or be a separate program site.

See a list of Adult Day Service Programs who have a contract with the Division of Adult Services and Aging.

The South Dakota Adult Day Services Association website provides information on available Adult Day Service locations.
