Our Cody, Wyoming Day Program runs Monday-Thursday 8:30 am-4:00 pm and Friday 8:30 am-2:00 pm. During these hours, we focus on each individual's need as we have a very person centered philosophy. An IPC (Individual Plan of Care) is developed according to the specific needs and care that an individual requires in order to gain as much independence possible in their lives. We offer an array of programs to assist with this process. We believe that through life experiences, and by exposing our members (persons served) to as many activities and situations as possible, it improves their quality of life and increases independence.
The North Big Horn Program is tailored to individuals that may require a high degree of support due to limited physical ability, cognitive or communication challenges, or who are in need of assistance with activities of daily living. This program is currently open based on need.
