Licensed Adult Day Care Centers Regulation Comprehensive Revision
General Information
Action Summary The regulatory action will repeal the existing regulation for licensed adult day care centers, 22VAC40-60, and adopt a new regulation, 22VAC40-61, to replace it. The new regulation is to be a comprehensive revision of the existing regulation. A comprehensive revision is needed to provide greater protection for adults in care, improve the organization of the regulation, increase clarity and consistency, incorporate changed practices and procedures, and eliminate unnecessarily burdensome or intrusive requirements. The goals of the action are to better meet the needs of an increasingly vulnerable population of residents who are aged, infirm or disabled, and to do so in a cost effective manner.
