We incorporate structured learning and fun to help individuals reach personal goals that include:

- Enhancing mobility
We also offer active treatment and therapeutic services—including motor skills development and social rehabilitation—as well as sensory activities to individuals whose needs are more involved or to those who exhibit challenging behaviors.
Our goal is to ensure that adults can attend the day program of their choosing. We help each person find an adult day program that is right for them and meet goals that change their lives for the better.
