Our DayHab program encourages individuals to adopt an active lifestyle through various activities, trips, and projects during the day. In our DayHab program, clients spend time with others from the program exploring the city, engaging in local activities, and participating in citywide programs such as the Roswell Recreation Center and the Joy Club Senior Center.
With trained staff members, clients travel to nearby communities like Dexter to participate in Reins for Life. This program provides participants a therapeutic experience of horseback riding and it has proven to bring enormous benefits for our clients. On other occasions we plan a day trip to Ruidoso to do some fishing or catch a concert. Sometimes we even allow clients over 21 to try their luck at the Inn of the Mountain Gods casino. We have them practice an appropriate level of moderation, of course.
A few times a year, the Konsumer Input Kommittee, also known as KIK, advocate for Tobosa’s mission by planning out the year with events and setting goals. From these goals, trips to San Antonio, for example, have been organized and fundraisers have been held to support them. In the last three years, those who have actively participated in the committee have had the opportunity to visit the sights and explore the city of San Antonio, making trips to remember.
Through the DayHab program, Ronnie, for example, has traveled to numerous locations to watch NFL football games. He’s enjoyed this activity for most of the last decade. Like some of our more independent clients, Ronnie is capable of traveling on his own. In some instances, other clients like Ronnie travel to visit family across the state or other parts of the country.
Although Roswell is a rapidly growing city, with amenities becoming vastly available, there is still a challenge of finding creative ways to spend our days. Fortunately, Tobosa has had some success in sustaining efforts to maintain activities and opportunities for individual personal growth.
