    Adult Day Care as Home Occupation?

    Anyone have any experiences with an Adult Day Care? There would be no health care provided, it is mainly a place for adults who are not capable of doing everyday things anymore, but are not at the level of being placed in a senior living center.

    We provide respite care facilities for special needs clients, many of whom are aged, in purpose built centres (community centres) throughout the City. I'm not aware of any Adult Day Care activities operating in dwellings - at least on a commercial or formal basis. It sounds like the sort of thing people in a community would do for each other though and something we wouldn't be interested in regulating.

    Unless governed by your Utah state legislation, they may be protected / covered by the Fair Housing Act if they are for 8 or fewer occupants (even without overnight accomodation). Review them in light of it and see.

    We treat them the same as day care for kids. Up to 7 in a home with state licensing, no zoning issues involved. After that, they need a special exception permit (requiring a public hearing) in a residential or office land use, and are permitted in commercial areas.

    Thanks. I was thinking that we would treat it like a home day care and make them go through the conditional use process.
