Loretto’s Daybreak Adult Medical Program helps adults 21 and older to live independently for as long as possible by supplementing the services they are already receiving and assisting them with medical conditions through a network of RNs, LPNs, Certified Nurse’s Aides, Registered Dieticians, Therapists, Case Managers and Recreation Staff. This program provides a safe and comfortable environment six days a week that includes physical, occupational and speech therapy, medication management, nutritional services, transportation services, recreational activities, and more.
Daybreak recently moved to a bigger location at the Loretto Syracuse Campus to accommodate the increased demand for the program’s services.
