what is Day Habilitation?
Day Habilitation Services
Day Habilitation services help people with disabilities develop skills and independence. Services include community involvement activities, vocational training, life skills training, and health and wellness education. Services are provided Monday – Friday for at least 5 hours per day.
The day habilitation service component is the provision of assistance to an individual that is necessary for the individual to acquire skills to reside, integrate and participate successfully in the community.
Day habilitation may be provided to an individual only in a setting that is not the residence of the individual, unless the provision of day habilitation in a residence is justified because of the individual's medical condition or behavioral issues or because the individual is of retirement age, and such justification is documented in the individual's record. However, during emergency situations (such as the Covid-19 pandemic), accommodations to this setting may be made to ensure services are safely provided.
