Through Day Services for adults with disabilities, Lifeworks helps people connect to the community, engage with their peers, and utilize modern technology – all while receiving the highest quality care.
Lifeworks offers Day Services at six locations in Minnesota:
- Lifeworks Apple Valley
- Lifeworks Bloomington
- Lifeworks Brooklyn Park
- Lifeworks Eagan
- Lifeworks Hastings
- Lifeworks Mankato
Across all Lifeworks Day Services locations, we offer exceptional care and provide daily opportunities for social growth and interaction.
Lifeworks also offers a variety of educational options that are unique to each location, with topics including art, music, technology, and wellness.
While social and educational activities are occurring throughout the day at each of our locations, we strive to get Day Services participants involved in community activities as much as possible.
In 2015, individuals enrolled in a Lifeworks Day Services program engaged in community outings 12,660 times!
Community organizations that partner with Lifeworks include:
- Alexis Bailly Vineyard
- Base Camp
- BreakAway Arts
- McNally Smith College of Music
- Northfield Arts Guild
- Science Museum of Minnesota
- Therapy Dog International
- Walker Art Center
At Lifeworks, we understand that transportation can be a barrier for people with disabilities. That’s why we are committed to pursuing all available transportation options and creating unique solutions for you.
Transportation to Lifeworks Day Services programs vary by location. Options that may be available to you include:
- Catching a ride on a Lifeworks-owned bus
- Utilizing Metro Mobility
- Riding on Transit Link
- Taking a city bus
- Getting a ride arranged by Lifeworks through a private bus company
While we will always do everything we can to ensure our programs are accessible, we cannot guarantee that transportation is available to a Lifeworks Day Services program.
