Oregon has no requirements for the provision of adult day services. The state has operational standards, which providers may comply with on a voluntary basis. These standards are summarized in this profile.
Providers are required to register their programs on a registry administered by the Department of Human Services, Seniors and People with Disabilities Division. All adult day services programs shall register with the Division. The form for registration shall include, but not be limited to: (1) the name and address of the program and (2) a checklist to determine the extent each program is voluntarily complying with the standards set forth in these rules. Licensed long-term care facilities providing adult day services programs are not required to register.
