DayBreak - A Program for Seniors
DayBreak is a ministry for senior adults with varying degrees of memory loss and senior adults who are seeking group fellowship. The program is structured to meet the cognitive and social needs of senior adults with varying degrees of memory loss. DayBreak provides a loving and caring Christian environment that includes fellowship, fun and - most importantly- stimulating and creative activities geared towards their unique abilities.
DayBreak currently meets on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and includes coffee and fellowship, devotions, music, lunch and afternoon activities such as games, sing-alongs, dances and special events.
