What is a Day Program


Day ProgramA day program is a planned program of activities designed to promote well-being through social and health related services. It provides a safe, supportive and stimulating environment with daily activities designed to strengthen and reinforce the changing capabilities of each participant.

The intent of a day program center is primarily two-fold:

  • To provide adults an opportunity to get out of the house and receive both cognitive and social stimulation
  • To give caregivers a much-needed break in which to attend to personal needs, or simply rest and relax
