Our Program


Caregivers are dedicated and caring, but more often than not they are exhausted. They need a break from caregiving to take care of their own needs. DayBreak gives the caregiver an hour, a half-day or a full day of respite while their loved one engages in meaningful activity and social interaction in our “home away from home” setting.

Our Services


An extension of home, DayBreak offers a community of support, love, respect, acceptance, patience and humor. We encourage, laugh with and protect our participants, supporting their families in the process. At DayBreak, we specialize in the care of those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, but we also care for those with Parkinson’s and those who have suffered a stroke or need minimal supervision and/or assistance
