What are Benevilla Life Enrichment Day Programs?
Safe and Active Environment for Your Loved One
Benevilla Life Enrichment Day Programs provide a safe and active place for older adults living with chronic illness that require constant care by a family member. Your loved one will be invited to participate in physical, social and cognitive activities by our professional, caring and compassionate staff. Instead of sitting home watching TV or sleeping, your loved one, will be encouraged to join in group activities and social programs.

Benevilla Life Enrichment Day Programs provide respite for family members caring for a loved one. Caregivers need time off from the stresses and strains of caring for loved one.
