Easterseals Colorado provides a unique day program for Stroke Survivors. Physical, Occupational, Speech, and Warm Water Therapies are available through an adult day program environment, assisting Stroke Survivors in their pursuit of independence. It is a place to find community, support, and friendship. This program also provides respite for caregivers. Our program hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday. Some participants utilize Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waiver funds to pay for program fees and transportation.
