Adult Day Care Facility - Wyoming Licensure Information


The definition of an Adult Day Care Facility is any facility not otherwise certified by the Wyoming Department of Health, engaged in the business of providing activities of daily living support and supervision services programming based on a social model, to four (4) or more persons eighteen (18) years of age or older with physical and mental disabilities.

Adult day care is a community-based group program designed to meet the needs of adults with physical or mental disabilities through an individual activity care plan. It is a structured, comprehensive program that provides a variety of health, social, and related support services in a protective setting during any part of a day but less than 24-hour care.

A valid state license is required prior to providing care to any client/patient/resident.

Following are the requirements and procedures through which your agency may be approved to be licensed as a provider of Adult Day Care Facility services.
