Adult Day Program Application
We are grateful for your interest in our Adult Day Program! We hope you will find our adults receive high-quality care and attention for their physical and medical needs, but most importantly, also receive the compassion and encouragement needed for their emotional and social well-being.
Our adults have a full day specifically planned to cater to their individuality each day from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. These activities vary from sessions in our sensory room, bingo and Wii tournaments, monthly outings, exercise time, painting classes or cooking classes just to name a few. We would love to meet you and give you a personal tour of our newly renovated facility.
We will just need a couple of things from you. Please take time to fill out the Adult Application, which can be completed online, or downloaded and returned to us via mail, email, or fax.

“The staff at the Center’s Adult Day Services are like family to us. They treat Ben like a friend, speak to him like he matters and push him to do more. They are great cheerleaders in promoting good health for my son and encourage him to keep moving.”
– Louise (Mother to Ben who has been attending the Center since 2012)
A typical day in our Adult Day Services Program will look different for everyone involved. Since we provide day services ranging from total care needs to those who are moderately independent, a person’s day can be tailored specifically to meet their needs and interests. For all our adults, our staff is prepared to assist with all aspects of care ranging from feeding, toileting, oral care, and therapeutic needs as well as engaging the person throughout the day in activities of their choice.
Also, because our adults’ nutrition is important to us, we also provide breakfast and lunch catered to their dietary needs daily. We also provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy as ordered by the participant’s physician. Our mission at the Therapy & Learning Center Adult Day Services is to provide each individual with daily choices on activities that not only meet their interests but provide a well-rounded, purpose-filled life.
Involvement in our community is important to our program participants. Our program is designed to offer participants opportunities to enjoy activities in the community each day. We believe this element of social interaction and community engagement adds to our participants’ overall quality of life. All while being under the watchful care of our staff, participants have the opportunity to:
- Volunteer at local organizations
- Enjoy dining experiences at restaurants
- Attend sporting events
- Experience local events and special attractions (Ex. plays, programs, or special festivals)
Additionally, we encourage the community to engage with our clients at the Center by providing activities like art & music therapy, games, performances, as well as visits and hands-on lessons from local artisans and craftsman. Community outings and interactions allow our participants a different and unique experience every day!
“If I couldn’t come here I would be sitting at home bored all the time. This is my home away from home. These are my friends and where I belong.”
– Courtney, adult participant at the Center for over 8 years
