Our Adult Day Programs offer adults with disabilities a goal-oriented program of developmental and therapeutic services to initiate, maintain, increase or maximize an individual’s independent functioning and become more actively involved in their community.

The Center is open to ages 18 or older, from 7:30 am – 5:30 pm. We also have a 2nd Shift Vocational program which is from 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Nursing services are offered throughout the day, including g-tube feedings, breathing treatments, seizure monitoring, medication administration and countless other medical services.

Vocational Services

Vocational services address pre-vocational skill development through classes, and simulated or real work experiences for which they are paid with the hope that this training could lead to competitive employment. Community integrated recreational and volunteer activities are also offered on a regular basis. URS’ Vocational Services program promotes independence, work skills and offers wages through several job opportunities including small parts assembly, culinary, janitorial and our secure shredding program.

Adult Day Services

URS’ Adult Day Services Programs provide health services, therapeutic services, and social activities for people with disabilities. Adult Day Services participants often require and receive assistance with activities of daily living (ADL) such as eating, bathing, dressing and toileting. They are also offered the opportunity to participate in activities such as “life skills classes.” Participants can partake in arts and crafts, gardening, recreational activities and vocational activities with a focus on maximizing their level of independence.

Family and Caregiver Support

We offer support services to families and caregivers of adults with disabilities through the following programs:

  • Support Groups – provides a therapeutic atmosphere and structured program that is facilitated by our staff, but led by other caregivers. Our support group meets the first Wednesday of each month from 10-11 am at URS.
  • Therapy Groups – uses evidence-based therapy models to offer a supportive and process-oriented therapy group
  • Individual/One-on-One Counseling
