What are Daytime Activities?

Day activities are a range of supervised activities through which you:

  • Retain skills. To prevent you from deteriorating and becoming unable to be self-reliant.
  • Skills you can improve or learn. So that you can eventually manage by yourself again, do (voluntary) work, follow education or participate in (sports) activities in your neighbourhood.

Do you need daytime activities?

You can ask for help in your own area.

Do you have a reason why you cannot work (work restriction)?

  • Can you work only with assistance or guidance due to an illness or disability? Or are you unable to work at all due to illness or disability?
