Adult Day

As people who have brain injuries or physical disabilities near retirement age, they may not be interested in working five days a week, but still want to keep active. Rise's team of certified brain injury specialists and program specialists assist people in increasing their independence and enhancing their development.

Rise’s Adult Day Programs offer a wide range of life enrichment activities on a customized schedule. These recreational, social, and creative activities, as well as the personal and medication assistance, provide people with opportunities to increase their personal choices, peer relationships, self-esteem, community skills and physical abilities. 

Rise has four Adult Day Program locations throughout the Twin Cities, including the:

  • Emma B. Howe Northtown Family YMCA in Coon Rapids
  • Fridley Community Center
  • Maplewood Community Center / YMCA,
  • Mounds View Community Center / YMCA. 

For more information, contact Program Coordinator Judy Anderson at 763-567-0626;



Surrounded by the many friends she has made over the years, Sharon Wood celebrated the 25th anniversary of her coming to Rise's Adult Day Program in Golden Valley with a little party. In 1987, Sharon was just 29 years old, on the fast track with a promising career in television with Fox News when a drunk driver plowed into her car and changed her life forever. Suffering from severe head injuries, Sharon lay in a coma for 14 months before eventually regaining consciousness. Doctors gave her family little hope that Sharon would ever walk, talk, or respond to those around her. Sharon's fighting spirit, along with the strong love and support of her family, enabled her to continually improve. Today she maintains her strength and mobility with therapy, daily walks, and weekly swimming sessions. Sharon attends Adult Day five days a week and thrives on being with her friends and Rise team members and enthusiastically participates in a wide range of social, recreational, and creative activities.
