Developmental Disabilities Day Services in Wausau and Antigo

Every individual is unique — we all have different strengths, challenges and interests. And most of us flourish when we can learn and grow while doing something that truly interests us. North Central Health Care’s Adult Day Services are structured around those tenets — we help individuals with developmental and physical disabilities, who are 18 and older, reach their greatest social, educational, cognitive, life and community potential by offering them a variety of activities that stimulate their interest and growth.

We work with individuals to assess their strengths and needs, help them choose programs that will help them progress, and track their regression or progress in the program. Monday through Friday, 7:45 am to 3:15 pm
