Zion is thrilled to be the future home of Daniel's Place!
Daniel’s Place will be a respite care facility that gives short-term temporary care to persons whose disabilities are such that they need continual assistance. Having access to respite care allows caregivers – most often families – an option for times when they need a break or have tasks that require them to find care setting for their disabled loved one for a few hours. We will serve our clients throughout their life span.
