Adult Day Programs
Adult Day Programs are offered by Novelles team members in the San Francisco Bay area, Santa Maria and the greater Santa Barbara regions. Adult Day Programs operate M-F, typically 6 hours per day, and offer training to individuals in areas of community skills training, personal care, health oversight, and skill acquisition leading to greater inclusion with peers. In addition to the training noted, Novelles offers 1 Adult Day Program in the Bay area that focuses on community integration for adults with significant healthcare needs, and employs 2 registered nurses to assist with this mission. Recently, an Adult Day Program in Santa Maria was established to provide higher levels of staff engagement with individuals who have increased behavioral support needs. The healthcare and behavioral focused Adult Day Programs utilize Person-Centered Thinking practices as a process to promote individual choice-making by the person supported. All Novelles Adult Day Programs offer transportation to/from their respective locations.
