Please call our business office at 314-772-5107 to schedule a tour at the location nearest you. Each applicant is asked to complete our application packet. This can be e-mailed, or each Center will have enrollment paperwork. Included in the application is a Physician Review Form, required by the State of Missouri, and a Child and Adult Care Food Program Form, required as part of our federal food grant. (On this food form please only include the income of the perspective participant and any one financially dependent on the participant). All forms presented need to be filled out and returned before we set up the start date and arrange transportation if needed. It can take from 10 to 30 days before we give a start date.
Is St. Elizabeth Adult Day Care Center required to be licensed?
Yes, each St. Elizabeth Adult Day Care Center is licensed by the State of Missouri.
Must my family member attend every day of the week?
We find that it is best if participants have a set schedule. Frequency of attendance is set by the needs of the participant and family as well as payer source.
Can my family member only attend on his/her scheduled days?
No, we try to be flexible to a family’s needs. However, we can best meet needs when contacted in advance, especially if we are providing transportation. We cannot accommodate however if we are at total census that day per our licensure.
Can I bring my family member for just a half day or a couple of hours?
We only provide full-day service. We staff the full day according to the number of participants that will be there. Full day (8 hours) participation permits the caregiver the opportunity to tend to business and allows the Participant to get acclimated to their new friends, environment, and routine.
