What is a day at Valldaura like?
The day starts a little before 7:30 a.m. First, get dressed, make the bed and have breakfast. Once the table is collected and the first sports activity (gymnastics, hiking, …), it is time to go to the classroom and the residents who study in other urban schools move. Simultaneously, individual clinical care is started, where each resident, depending on his Therapeutic Plan, will have his clinic appointments scheduled. In the middle of the morning we have a short break and the second breakfast.
Educative and clinical activities continue until lunchtime. In the afternoon, after a period of free time, they are resumed both in the therapeutic school itself and outside of it, and in the case of the latter they differ in different areas: sports, cultural, educative, leisure (football, basketball , volleyball, visits to museums, movies, theater, excursions, camping, etc.). All these activities are designed with the aim of contributing to therapeutic progress.
At dusk, residents take a shower and prepare for dinner, which is served around 8:00 p.m. Already closing the day, we meet for the last group therapy, followed by a short leisure time, until bedtime, at 10:30 p.m.
Holidays and weekends have special programming.
