Resident Life

An approach as unique as every adult with IDD.

At Daymark Living, we treat learning in a holistic and individualized way, recognizing that everyone’s life goals are different. That’s why we’ve built our programming around six Dimensions of Wellness that, together, improve our resident's quality of life.
