As an alternative to institutionalization, Daybreak has the advantage of returning clients to their homes after providing day care by a professional staff. Daybreak is less expensive than 24-hour institutional care and clients are safe, comfortable and have the opportunity to interact with others. They benefit from challenging, healthy and stimulating activities such as music programs, field trips, life skills development and crafts. The Daybreak staff consists of, but is not limited to: a licensed practical nurse, certified nursing assistants, activities coordinators and program assistants. All staff are trained and focused on the care of the clients.
Daybreak is licensed with the State of Missouri and is operated in accordance with the US Department of Agriculture nondiscrimination clause which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, age, handicap, religion or national origin.
