Many caregivers who work outside the home are unable to stay home to care for loved ones. In addition, caregivers who do not work outside the home may wish a break from care giving to run errands, socialize, or simply to rest.

Care at Dodge Park Day Club is 7 days a week
Participants attend the program for several hours a day to a full day (ten to twelve hours), up to five days a week. Dodge Park offers extended hours, as well as offering care on Saturday and Sunday.
