About our Adult Day Program
Circle of Care’s Adult Day Program is designed to help support individuals living with cognitive impairment and also provide essential support for caregivers. We also now accept frail older adults without any cognitive impairments on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
For older adults living with dementias such as Alzheimer’s disease, the Adult Day Program is an opportunity to socialize in a supportive and caring environment. The program is run by a compassionate team of specially educated social workers, therapeutic recreationists and program assistants.
With over 7,000 square feet, a gourmet kitchen, and green outdoor space, Circle of Care’s Adult Day Program offers a broad range of activities, including:
- Games, including therapeutic games designed specifically for people with dementia
- Art therapy
- Tai chi
- Active games, such as floor darts, basketball, baseball toss, and many more
- Group discussions and 1-on-1
- Language Lessons
We offer full-day and half-day in-person programs at our Adult Day Program centre, as well as some online programming as well. Our clients have access to support through the guidance and experience of our ADP social workers, who perform phone wellness checks and provide resources and information to caregivers and clients.
Monday – Friday, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., with lunch included.
Monday & Friday, from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., with lunch included.
Monday – Friday: 11:00, & 2:00 programs offered via ZOOM.

What Our Clients Are Saying
“The Adult Day Program is a blessing for people like my mom and their family caregivers. When she was first diagnosed with dementia, she would spend her days just sitting in her room, looking out the window or at the wall. Now she goes to the Adult Day Program every day for mental and physical stimulation, companionship and nutritious meals. If it wasn’t for her ‘club’ she would have been in a long-term care facility years ago.”
