Day Program

The Rogerson House Day Program offers a positive option for those with memory loss who wish to continue living at home. This program gives participants access to programs and services designed to help maintain their physical and mental abilities. We promote socialization and provide nutritious meals, and an array of social and expressive therapy programs.

Day Program professionals include resident care assistants, expressive therapists, program assistants and a full-time program director.

Our Day Program participants enjoy the same specialized programming as our full-time residents, which emphasizes the positive, builds on abilities, and enhances self-confidence. Our Day Program allows families to spend quality time with family members at the end of each day. This program also allows for a smooth transition into our residency program, when appropriate.

Daily activities are designed with therapeutic results in mind and focus on the needs of the whole person: social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual.
