About Us

Since its inception in 1983, the Florida Adult Day Services Association (FADSA) has provided leadership, education, planning and development of adult day services across Florida. Through the promotion of quality day services ranging from respite programs to adult day health centers, FADSA has established a reputation as a leader in education, training and advocacy within the long-term care industry.

Who We Are

The Florida Adult Day Services Association was established in 1983 to unite centers in providing leadership, advocacy, education, and the advancement of adult day health services in Florida. Since its inception, adult day services have evolved from social models to comprehensive, person centered care centers offering a number of additional levels of care.

FADSA represents the adult day services industry of Florida in Tallahassee with our Legislative advocate, Asztalos and Associates. Beginning with the legislation that enacted the Adult Day Care Center statute, to the 2012 enactment of the Specialized Alzheimer’s AdultDayCareCenter license, FADSA representatives have worked with legislators and attended State hearings to insure that changes were in the best interest of our industry.

FADSA has represented the industry on the State Planning Committee, Purple Ribbon Task Force, and Rule changes in 2014 and 2016. It is also notified by the Department of Elder Affairs and Agency for Health Care Administration when there will be changes in the rules that regulate our industry, to allow us to be proactive.

In 2016, Chapter 58A-6.01 was opened to promulgate Chapter 429.918 “Specialized Alzheimer’s Services Adult Day Care Act,” FADSA was present at the workshop to provide input and oversight on what would regulate the compliance of licensure. In addition, testimony was given on recommendations of subject matter for the additional four hours of required Alzheimer’s training that would be most beneficial for adult day health care staff.

 

FADSA Officers of the Board and Board Members are considered the experts in the field and are consulted on matters relevant or related to adult day health care.

 

There are 281 licensed adult day health centers in Florida with a total license capacity of 14,676.

 

Members are the essence of our association. Members are the voice of change, advocacy, and advancement.
