Provide the opportunity for continued learning, skills enhancement, socialization and community inclusion.
The Adult Day Program provides individualized assistance for adults to choose activities and strengthen their skills. Services correspond with each individual’s abilities and include assistance with social, adaptive and other skills that foster a greater level of independence. Adult Day programs also benefit from a multitude of community groups who visit the centers to perform music, lead educational sessions and share their talents with program participants. Each adult day center focuses on choice.
Program participants choose the level of activity that is right for them, including a daily outing into the community.
Each center has extensive, new technology and sensory equipment for programs
In the past 18 months, UCP Heartland opened two new Adult Day program buildings, Gibbs Center in Jefferson City MO, and in St. Louis County, UCP Heartland Community Services North. The programs feature multiple training kitchens, employment training, residential services, adaptive equipment, bathrooms with lifts, recreation space, computer labs and enriched environments.
UCP Heartland provides increased choices for outings into the community
