The ADHC Program also offers complementary activities that promote and enhance physical, cognitive and social well-being, plus encourage independence and boost self-esteem.
ADHC can be a cost-effective alternative to home health services, nursing homes, or other assisted-living facilities. Costs associated with the ADHC program can be covered by Medicaid.
