Nebraska Day Programs for Adults with Developmental Disabilities
Are you tasked with caring for someone who has developmental disabilities, but need help providing the necessary support from time to time? Do you have DD, but want to expand your horizons beyond those that currently define your day-to-day experiences? In either case, you’ll be happy to know day programs for adults with developmental disabilities were designed with people like you in mind.
What Is An Adult Day Program?
Adults with disabilities day programs benefit both the people who attend them as well as the individuals responsible for providing in-home care for the programs’ attendees. These programs enable participants to be active in their respective communities, socialize with others, and receive any health and personal support services they might need. In other words, day programs help attendees live a more fulfilling, active life while giving participants easy access to health and wellness care.
Day programs for adults with DD have an added benefit – they give caregivers much-needed time to tend to other things, such as work, volunteering, or just some well-deserved downtime during which they can refresh themselves. In many cases, day programs can help caregivers save money because they’re often a viable alternative to nursing homes and costly in-home professional care.
Who Qualifies for Adults with Disabilities Day Programs?
While different centers may have varying criteria for participants, day programs are widely available for people who have an array of conditions. Here are some of the conditions that often qualify a person to attend a day program:
