Our Services

Health Services

Bennington Project Independence, Adult Day Service provides an exceptional blend of quality nursing and wellness services with social and personal enrichment programs in an Adult Day Center setting for older persons and younger adults with disabilities in Bennington County. Our Health Team works with a Physician Consultant and includes a Registered Nurse, Registered Dietician Consultant, Licensed Practical Nurse, Licensed Nursing Assistants, and a Social Worker.

Activity Program

BPI provides a wide range of meaningful adult activities tailored to meet the variety of special needs, interests and abilities of the people participating in the program. Every day is a different mix of opportunities for socializing, mentally stimulating games, reminiscence opportunities, discussions, craft and art work, physical activities, intergenerational experiences, healthcare, therapy assistance and personal care as well as shopping trips, tours and BPI adventures.

Family Support

BPI provides quality adult day services, providing families with peace of mind, knowing their loved one is being well cared for. Having the support of our program enables caregivers to work, do errands or just have time to relax.

BPI also offers a unique program entitled “Families Together.” So often individuals caring for an elderly or disabled loved one find that family and friends drift away. Not knowing how to help or wanting to bother the caregiver, they withdraw leaving the caregiver without critical emotional and social support.
