Day programs provide individuals with productive meaningful activities that provide educational, recreational and rehabilitative benefits. Frequent contacts are made to our offices inquiring about available day programs. Daily activities are designed to improve academic skills and teach health and safety skills among other daily life skills, all of which will provide benefits to those enrolled.
This program is located at 7301 Georgetown Road, Suite 100 in Indianapolis. The Indy North program served 75 individuals between January and December of 2014. This is almost double the number served in the previous year.
Sycamore’s newest Day program located at 10 W. Hanna on Indianapolis’ South side served 36 consumers during the 2014 year. Indy South has used a variety of art activities to provide new sensory experiences for those enrolled.
Participating in Activities for Lifelong Success is our longest running day program. It is located in our Morgan County Office at 465 S. Main Street in Martinsville. Their 2014 enrollment was 61 individuals.
Support, Training and Education for Personal Success was initiated at our 1001 Sycamore Lane, Danville location in 2007 to meet the needs of individuals seeking a safe, structured service. In 2014, 116 individuals participated in STEPS combining other services with those hosted in the day program area.
Sycamore uses satisfaction surveys to determine if our consumers are pleased with our services. For 2014, 98% of consumers and families reported they were satisfied with the services provided. Sycamore works continuously to obtain feedback from parents, families and consumers about the types of services they would like to see added to our current curriculum. In response to requests for cooking lessons, Sycamore initiated a Cooking Class. Each class is made up of 4-6 individuals who learn to read recipes and combine ingredients that result in some dining favorites. The Cooking Class now holds 5 sessions at our Danville location to meet the growing interest. Each session lasts 3-4 hours. The classes are frequently asked to prepare items for special meetings just to show what they can do.
