Day Activity & Health Services (DAHS)

What Are Day Activity & Health Services?

A licensed Day Activity & Health Services facility, such as Central Texas Helping Hands, is a facility that provides daytime service to people in the community who have physical, mental, medical, and social needs. These facilities provide up to 10 hours of service daily, Monday through Friday, to help care for an individual with special needs. 

 

Each DAHS facility must follow the Texas administrative code Day Activity and Heath Services Program Requirements. These requirements are put into place to ensure that anyone joining a Day Activity & Health Services facility will get the same great services regardless of where they attend. It also ensures that each facility is operating up to the Texas code.

 

The idea of a Day Activity & Health Service facility is to ensure that people with disabilities who would require a full-time nursing home receive care during normal business hours. This is ideal for those who want to have their loved ones at home or in their community with their primary caregiver on nights and weekends. This is a great option for caregivers who need to work during daytime hours.
