Adult Day Care Services from DayBreak
After our initial consultation, our nursing staff creates an individualized plan for your loved one where we provide meals, recreational activities, transportation to and from the center, and general health-related services. Each participant in our program is able to select which activities and services they would like to enjoy, depending on their interests and how they are feeling from day to day. Staff supervision is also central to these services in order to ensure the safety of the participants.

Senior activities might include arts and crafts, local outings, games, discussion groups, musical entertainment, and fitness programs like chair yoga or tai chi. Staff can assist with activities of daily living and are usually able to provide medication reminders, but they would not administer them.|
