Is Odyssey Life Center licensed?
Yes! We are licensed by the State of California Department of Developmental Services (DDS), Community Licensing Program. To serve in a licensed Adult Day Program, OLC staff submit to a rigorous background check before they are employed by the program.
Do we really need Adult Day Services since we seem to be doing fine on our own?
It’s a fact that no one knows your loved one better than you, however, family members report the benefits of sharing their caregiving challenges with staff and other caregivers as a way to get new ideas, strategies or solutions for caring for a loved one at home. In particular, staff can help you understand the best communication techniques when providing day care for an adult with autism. We can be your partner in care and will provide valuable support.
Do we need to provide transportation?
Alta California Regional Center may provide transportation for the clients to and from the program. Odyssey Life Center does not offer transportation services to and from the program, however, during program hours the Life Center provides transportation for outings in the community.
Is Odyssey Life Center anything like a nursing home or similar institution?
NO! One visit to OLC is all you’ll need to see that our center is not an institution– but a safe place for autistic adults to continue to work on their communication skills, life skills, and receive valuable mental stimulation.
Our center is community based – at a bustling shopping center – giving those who attend the sense that they’re “out in the world.” There are no gates, locked doors or fences at any of our locations. Instead, client safety is ensured with our ratio of one staff person for every three participants.
Do you take insurance or Medi-Cal to accept clients?
For Alta California Regional Center qualified clients, there is no cost. Once enrolled, the cost of our day center is covered by ACRC.
