Congratulations to Pauline Yeung-Ha, co-chair of AABANY’s Solo and Small Firm Practice Committee, for being quoted in an April 8 article on WNYC Radio about lack of regulation in adult daycare centers.
Yeung-Ha said she was alarmed at how easy it is to open these so called social adult daycare centers and said stricter rules are needed to ensure that providers are running legitimate centers that are beneficial to seniors. She also questioned whether the seniors being recruited for adult daycare are too healthy to really qualify for it. While social adult daycare is mostly social engagement, it’s still considered a form of long-term care and requires at least minimal incapacitation.
