Look to this day...

For yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is only a vision...

But today well-lived

Makes every yesterday a dream

of happiness and every tomorrow

a vision of hope.

Hours of Operation:

Bon Homie operates between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  We offer full days and half days at our center, and we try to be flexible with times to meet your family needs. 

 

Primary Programs Offered:

Bon Homie started in November of 1992 with the idea of offering services to the elderly population.  We quickly learned that our services would benefit adults of all ages, so we began offering services to individuals eighteen years of age and older.  Over the years, we have continually reinvented our program to meet the needs of our community. 

We continue to maintain our program to accommodate our Aging program; Sunflower Meadows.  Clients that benefit from this program may have had a stroke, are diagnosed with dementia, have a brain injury, have developmental disabilities and are high functioning or are aging but require assistance with ADL’s, or have other diagnosis that require some level of supervision throughout the day.  These individuals benefit from large and small group activities but may require some prompting and support to get involved.  They also enjoy the social aspect of their day.

We also developed a safe haven program in 2007 structured for those clients who are faced with more physical, social and medical needs.  We have named the stand-alone program and its own special area “Sandpiper Haven”. It specifically serves the increasing number of clients that require hands on care to get involved in every aspect of the program. The separation has enabled our staff to provide appropriate activities for these individuals and to get them more involved and stimulated.   Sandpiper Haven offers our clients a safe environment that encourages them the freedom to be themselves.  Clients that utilize this program have developmental disabilities.  Specific diagnosis that are cared for in the sandpiper program are Cerebral Palsy, seizure disorders and Down syndrome.  Clients may also be nonverbal, wheelchair dependent and require total assistance with daily living activities.
