- Registration Fee – A non refundable one-time fee of $55.00 is charged to cover assessment costs. This registration fee is not credited toward the daily fees.
- Extended Service Fee – Please note that should the participant be picked up after the center closes there will be an automatic charge of $1 per minute after 5:30 PM. Example: 20 minutes late will be a $20.00 fee.
- Personal Care Fee – Should the need for personal care services arise (e.g. shower), because it is becoming too difficult at home, we are happy to schedule routine care for a charge of $18 for each personal care service. This service will be arranged and scheduled during regular program hours. In extreme cases, an unscheduled shower may be required, in which case, you will be notified and New Day will charge $18 for this service.
- Billing & Payment Schedule – New Day sends out bills monthly. Payments are expected in a timely fashion, before the next billing cycle. Cash, checks or credit cards are accepted. Make checks payable to Faith Lutheran DBA New Day. If you have questions regarding your bill, please don’t hesitate to call (561) 844-0012 or email email@example.com.
