Creating, Engaging Programs
Our creative, Holistic approach to adult day programming allows us to offer participants structure without sacrificing the joy that comes with spontaneity. Our talented staff engages the whole person -- mind, body and spirit - by integrating memory support, health and wellness and creative arts therapies (music, art, drama and dance) into each day's activities, including laughter yoga, sensory experiences, word games and weekly outings, intergenerational events, entertainment, celebrations, discussion and reminiscence groups. Thoughtfully planned these unique programs nurture each person's individual well-being.
