Lend a Helping Hand at Day Break Adult Day Care

What: The Day Break Adult day care centers in South San Jose and Sunnyvale provide a safe environment for dependent seniors so that their family caregivers can get a much-needed break. Volunteers help the seniors engage in recreational activities (arts & crafts, reminiscence activities, games & puzzles, etc.) to stimulate cognitive and social skills; physical activities such as exercise and yoga to maintain physical functioning; and social interaction amongst peers to reduce seniors' isolation. Volunteers are encouraged share their unique talents with the group.
