Weigh In with the Congressional Super Committee

Posted September 29, 2011 in Public Policy

Call the local and DC offices of your Representatives/Senators to urge them to protect  critical programs low-income older adults depend upon, including Medicare, Medicaid and Older Americans Act services. To find contact information for your Members of Congress, visit their websites, which you can find at: www.senate.gov and www.house.gov.

Reach out to your legislators during the September recess (Sept. 26-30).   Invite them to your adult day center to SEE the range of services your  agency coordinates. It will be easier to ask your legislators to  sustain the capacity of Medicaid HCBS and OAA programs once they  understand how your agency operates and the value of the services you
provide to their constituents.

 

Ask others to do the same! Urge colleagues, advisory board members, volunteers and clients to make calls and send emails to your agency’s House and Senate congressional
delegation.

Senior Care Centers of America Announces Merger with Active Day

Posted September 27, 2011 in Uncategorized

Senior Care Centers of America, the second largest operator of adult day services, has announced that Active Day, the largest operator of adult day services, has agreed to merge with Senior Care. The combined organization will have 76 centers in 11 states and will substantially surpass the size of its nearest competitor. After the merger, Active Day will be a subsidiary of Senior Care, and the ownership of Senior Care will remain essentially unchanged. Jim Donnelly, CEO of Senior Care, will lead the combined organization. Selected members of the Active Day management team will continue to work in the combined entity. The merger is expected to close in November 2011.

 

According to Mr. Donnelly, “Active Day and Senior Care have both been leaders in adult day services and have been providing quality care for many years in adjacent geographies. Combining our resources is a natural step. Together we’ll continue to champion our cost-effective alternative to home health, nursing homes and other long-term care. ”

 

“The combined forces of Active Day and Senior Care will benefit the industry and promote the well being of the thousands of participants in our centers every day,” commented Peter Harris, Chairman of Active Day. “This strategic transaction is a significant and positive development in the continued expansion of adult day services in the U.S.”
