DayBreak – An Adult Day Program

What:

Caregivers are dedicated, devoted, loving, and more often than not, exhausted. They need a break from the 24/7 rigors of caregiving to refresh their batteries and take care of their own needs. DayBreak provides an hour, a half-day, or a full day away — where their loved one can engage in meaningful social interactions in a “home away from home” setting.

Why:

At DayBreak, we specialize in the care of individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia but also care for those with Parkinson’s, Traumatic Brain Injuries, strokes, and those in need of minimal supervision/assistance. An extension of home, we offer a community of support, love, respect, acceptance, patience, and humor. We will encourage, laugh with, protect your loved ones, and support you in the process.

Needs:

ADA-compliant walking path/landscaping; weed trimmer; lawn chair cushions; office supplies; musical instruments; craft supplies; exterior painting of facility; camera; fire sprinkler system.

Did you know?

DayBreak is the first, and only, respite facility in Teller County (we also serve El Paso and Park counties) affording the caregiver a day off and their loved one a day out.

“He was entertained and uplifted all afternoon — and truly enjoyed himself, which is exactly what I had hoped and prayed for.”
— Lucie, wife of a DayBreak participant
