Senior Adult Program

Senior Services offers our mature adult with disabilities the opportunity to remain engaged in the community through activities to enhance, social cultural and recreational experiences. Activities include both site based and regional day trips.

OVERVIEW

The UCPNB Senior Adult Program serves adults with developmental disabilities ages 50 and older.  We are located in the heart of Rohnert Park, providing access to a number of shops, nature trails, parks, restaurants, and other activities within walking distance.  The building has a large program room and a variety of break out classrooms. The inside has been  designed to provide a relaxing environment that is complemented with music, LED lighting, and furnishings designed for the use and comfort of senior adults.

The purpose of the program is to offer a variety of site-based and community-based Recreation, Education, and Wellness activities. The Senior Program provides activities that stimulate, enhance, and provide overall cognitive functioning,  positive social interaction, and improves everyones’ quality of life.

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

Although there is a structured schedule, participants have a choice of multiple activities that are offered on a daily basis. Our desire is for seniors to continue a life-long learning, enjoyment of recreation, and an enhanced wellness experience. 

On-site recreation, education, and wellness activities include: (1) arts and crafts, (2) stretching and light exercise, (3) nutrition education and healthy cooking, (4) music, Karaoke, sing-a-longs, and free style dance, (5) reading and storytelling, (6) current events and reality orientation, and (6) flora and fauna and gardening.

Participating in community-based activities is a primary focus of the program. Rohnert Park and surrounding communities provide ample opportunity for: (1) bowling outings, (2) park, trail, and open space walks, (3) trips to libraries, theaters, and museums, (4) nature and gardening experiences, (5) attending sports events, (6) structured classes, and (7) attending seasonal special events such as: the Sonoma County Fair and the Farmers Markets.

On-site and community based activities provide a well-rounded program for the participants. The program plays a vital role in allowing senior adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to “age in place” safely and comfortably with the support of their community.

Hi friends!
October 6th is World Cerebral Palsy day!
Today we come together (virtually) to celebrate, to build awareness of what CP is and to create change!

At BOOST we celebrate our students achievements! It is impressive how all of them have adapted to this new crazy schedule and continued to work towards their goals. We are so proud of you for doing all this with a smile on your face!

Did you know that there are 17 million people around the world living with cerebral palsy? It is the most common physical disability in childhood. It primarily affects movement, but people with CP may also have visual, learning, hearing, speech, epilepsy and intellectual impairments.

BOOST offers a classroom program that is structured specifically for children with Cerebral Palsy and other motor disabilities. Our students learn best in a movement based structure. Therefore we provide multiple opportunities where they can practice and learn to master their skills. We are proud to be an organization that is creating change and working hard so that our students can have a better life.

Let’s celebrate in person next year! 💚💚💚

Thank you to our UCPNB family for loving, caring and advocating for our students! Margaret Farman, Laura Briggin, Nate Yates, Jen Whalen, Steve Gatlin, Amanda Buhrer, Devin Cornish, Kiana Shibata, Sammie Wills, Nana Peña Caldera💚💚

World CP Day is an opportunity for the whole world to come together to recognize and celebrate the 17 million people around the world living with cerebral palsy.

On 6 October every year, individuals, families and organizations celebrate by sharing stories, hosting events, and wearing the color green.

Cerebral palsy is the most common childhood disability, yet around the globe, there’s a broad lack of knowledge of what it is and how it’s caused, even in the medical field.

Through World CP Day we can build awareness of what CP is, how it’s caused, and how early detection and intervention is the key to improving outcomes for people with CP.

As World CP Day continues to grow in popularity, we will continue to show the world all the incredible things that people with cerebral palsy achieve when barriers are removed.
