Adult Day Programs


Adult Day Programs

Israel Elwyn’s Adult Day Programs provide services to people with disabilities aged 21 and over who require comprehensive support on a daily basis. The centers offer opportunities for social interaction, the expansion of skills for independent living, and participation in a variety of expressive, recreational, and other activities.

The Adult Day Programs aim to support each person in fulfilling their potential, according to their preferences, together with a comprehensive individual plan and any necessary adaptations.

As part of the program, the service recipients receive individual and group therapies from a professional staff of health therapists, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy, and others. Additionally, they receive emotional support from social workers, and participate in expressive therapies, such as art, music, drama, and more.

Israel Elwyn’s Adult Day Programs foster an integral relationship with the community and ongoing efforts are made to reinforce this through volunteerism and together with dedicated partners from other organizations.

Through shared activities, the Adult Day Programs have become an essential part of the surrounding communities, thereby benefiting everyone.
