And for those of you not familiar with CAADS, they are the California Association for Adult Day Services (CAADS). This is the 501 (c) 6 non-profit statewide association that supports the development of Adult Day Services while governed by an 18-member Board of Directors. They are a membership-based association supported by dues, grants, and educational activities. They are the reason we have so much support and guidance in our field.
Again, and we can’t say it enough, thank you to our friends and family in Adult Day Services and thank you to CAADS! Happy 40th Anniversary!
