Open Roads Day Habilitation for Seniors

Open Roads Day Habilitation is a productive and meaningful retirement option for older people who no longer desire to work. Our program provides older individuals with disabilities an opportunity to participate in leisure activities such as community outings, physical activities, crafts and more.

Open Roads is a sister program to Uptown Day Habilitation. Both Uptown and Open Roads programs provide assistance in improving the skills needed to perform daily activities away from home. 

Additionally, both programs focus on giving back to the community through volunteerism and participation in local community opportunities.
