The Day on the Lake Program is the only adaptive water sports program for those with physical and neurological disabilities offered in Arizona.
Hacienda Skilled Nursing Facility is the home to many individuals living with complex physical and neurological disabilities. Many of our residents require the use of wheelchairs and specialized equipment for mobility. Hacienda’s mission and values are rooted in the belief that all individuals regardless of ability, should have equal opportunity to access healthcare and social services that meet their needs. With this belief system in mind, Hacienda staff are continuously looking for activities in the community that can enrich the quality of life for our residents. One such activity is the Day on the Lake Program.
This amazing and unique event is sponsored by Dignity Health and Barrow Neurological Institute. This year marked the 20th year the program has been in existence. The annual event is held at Bartlett Lake Marina in Carefree, Arizona. Residents of Hacienda Skilled Nursing Facility were able to enjoy boating, fishing, tubing and even jet skiing!
