Mission Statement

The mission of KADEP is "to provide a client-centered, community based program designed to enhance participants' quality of life by improving or maximizing their physical, emotional, social, cognitive and spiritual well-being."

Description

The Rocky Mountain MS Center King Adult Day Enrichment Program (KADEP) is a nationally recognized program designed to meet the specialized needs and interests of younger adults with MS and other acquired neurological diseases or disabilities.

The program provides wellness monitoring care, adaptive techniques for leisure and recreation and education about support skills specifically for people with disabilities. KADEP emphasizes the significance of independent living or continued family living in the community. The program develops individual care plans that encompass numerous areas of daily living and are designed to maximize functional independence. Each client's independent functioning is monitored on a daily basis. Our goal is to have at least 75% of program participants maintain or improve their functional status.

Program participants can choose from 12-14 classes and activities of interest per day. Activities include crafts, ceramics, hydrotherapy, debate groups, healthy cooking classes, individual and group exercise, disability support groups, outdoor adaptive sporting activities, community outings and groups to enhance cognition and memory. The program also encourages participants to be active in the Participant Advisory Council, where clients can suggest ideas to make the program fit their needs specifically. Breakfast and lunch are served daily. Health and wellness monitoring and assistance with physical needs are always available. Volunteer opportunities are also available.

Good at getting back to me. Did not have time to commit.

KADEP is vital to the quality of life for its clients and their families. When tragedy strikes a family, the immediate response of family and friends is strong, but as time goes on the support tends to drop. Victims and family often must keep going on their own. KADEP is a vital part of support for these families and victims/clients.

My son was injured 11 years ago and has a severe brain injury. He has attended Kadep for a few years now. Without Kadep he would have no where to go where he would feel accepted, enjoy activities and socialize with friends, both staff and other clients. Kadep is vital to his well-being.
