The Columbus Day Activity program offers supervised care for individuals who want to participate in structured activities and whose families and caretakers are looking for community-based respite care.
The program operates Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The facility expanded in 2012, reflecting Columbus’s commitment to providing a safe and accessible environment for individuals with disabilities.
Some examples of daily activities include:
- Community-based outings
- Arts and crafts
- Music therapy
- Seasonal events
With a balance of therapeutic, recreational, and leisure activities, the program encourages social interaction and integration in the community.
I have found that the staff and participants at Columbus are like a family helping each other to reach their full potential. Because Ben can’t speak, it was hard to let him go. I needed to feel a sense of trust with the people who were working with someone I love so much. In no time, I was at ease with the staff.”
— Esther Martin, Mother of Ben Martin, 30 years old
