Recreational Day Services
Recreational DayServices offer a wide range of social activities for everyone. It’s a place where folks can be themselves, have fun, and create new and meaningful relationships with others in a casual but stimulating setting. The best way to understand is to visit and see, but please take a look at our Gallery to get a sense of what goes on. Every day is its own reward.
We work to be as inclusive of special needs as possible, and will team up with the family for the right array of support for those with dementia, traumatic brain injury or other medical or cognitive challenges.
Day Services are provided through a mix of private pay, contracts with DSHS agencies such as community respite, and generous community support. Contact Brett to learn more.
Through a contract with Spokane County, DayBridge Services now offers Community Inclusion Services we call DayBridge Connect. Many people have social anxiety and difficulty getting out of their shell to do more and become more social. It can be especially difficult if you have special needs and the world views you differently at first glance. DayBridge Connect helps “break the ice” for our participants so they can develop natural networks of friends and neighbors of similar interests.
We need Volunteers!! DayBridge Connect’s model is dependent on neighbors helping neighbors to thrive. If you are looking for a few hours of volunteer time a month to really make a difference in someone’s life, click here
Our Service Values
Family Directed Services: We are a non-profit Family Cooperative, therefore our only responsibility is to those we serve. This includes financial integrity, so our fees go straight to services, not a larger hierarchy.
Inclusion: We appreciate that even those who “draw outside of the lines” deserve healthy and affirming days. We work to include everyone.
Fun: Really, what is the point if there isn’t a lot of fun going on? We provide a varied day program and special events, including long-distance and community based outings.
Same Faces / Same Places: Many people do better with consistancy and a set routine. This is expecially true of persons with dementia. Having a consistent routine filled with smiling faces can help everyone’s day.
This is My Brother / Sister: Our diverse team has a responsibility to act as extended families. “This is my brother/my sister” is our service ethic and the point of our training. Our team has been fully vetted. We provide a range of skilled services as allowed by law. (Note: DayBridge is NOT an Adult Day Health Services and not an alternative to skilled or 24/7 care.)
Safety First: We are committed to keeping your Loved One safe while they are with us, and if we feel we cannot we will tell you. We are secure, keep an eye on hydration, and watch for unusual behavior.
Nothing happens without good people doing great work! We know that families must have confidence in those who serve. All DayBridge Team members have specific credentials and training beyond basic application and ID verification:
✔ Confidentiality Agreement
✔ FBI fingerprint background check
✔ Drug testing at hire and randomly
✔ 1st Aid/CPR
✔ Food Handler’s Card
✔ TB testing annually
✔ Hepatitis B Vaccine is offered to all employees
✔ Mandatory Reporting Requirements: All employees of DayBridge are Mandatory Reporters, which requires any suspicion of abuse or neglect of a vulnerable person to be reported to state authorities and/or law enforcement. Staff are trained in this at intake and 2X a year.
In addition, staff are trained in the specific needs of each Loved One served.
