Elderday Adult Day Health Care - Medical Director

Presented by Community Bridges
Community Bridges Job Header

The Medical Director at Elderday is responsible for signing IPCs (Individual Plans of Care) for each participant upon entry into the program and at the six-monthly reassessments.

Each plan of care is developed through an inter-disciplinary assessment of the medical, physical and psycho-social strengths and needs of the participant, with the intent of avoiding premature institutionalization.

A nurse, social worker, physical therapist, occupational therapist, nutritionist, and activities coordinator each develop the care plan for their own discipline. This is a comprehensive assessment of the needs of the participant, who may attend Elderday from 2 to 5 days a week, 4 to 5 hours a day.

Staff members bring their questions and concerns to the Medical Director for feedback, usually twice a month, at the Interdisciplinary Team meeting; however, participants’ primary care physicians, not the Medical Director at Elderday, make all medical decisions on behalf of their patients/participants.

The main responsibilities of the Elderday Medical Director include:

  • Attending Interdisciplinary Team meetings (at least one or two of the weekly meetings each month)
  • Signing the Treatment Authorization Request and Individual Plan of Care for each participant twice a year
  • Assisting the program in developing and reviewing medical/nursing policies and procedures, when needed
  • Providing consultation during the Interdisciplinary Team meeting about participant needs
  • Occasionally communicating with participants’ primary care physician about specific issues

This has been a volunteer position however a stipend of up to $1,000/month is available. Complete application at and email to
