Rep. Barbara Lee D-CA and Sen. Bob Casey D-PA introduced the Adult Day Achievement Act that would establish a grant program and fund research on developing specialized Adult Day programs that serve younger adults suffering from a disability as a result of a neurological disease or condition like multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease or traumatic brain injury (TBI). We hope that as an advocate for quality aging services you’ll take this opportunity to connect with your legislator, and ask them to co-sponsor the Adult day Achievement Center Act. Please to urge your member of Congress to support HR 883 in the House and S 495 in the Senate.
The MS Society released a recent report assessing outcomes for people with MS in Adult Day Programs. The researchers from RTI describe best practices for determining outcomes and benefits in adult day service centers that offer services for individuals with Multiple Sclerosis.
