Adult Day Program

A safe and friendly environment for clients with dementia.

COVID Update

We are providing care for a limited number of participants each day, supplemented by virtual programming for those at home. Strict safety measures are in place to ensure the continued health of our clients and staff.

About our Adult Day Program

Dementia is a progressive disease that can affect a person’s memory, thinking, orientation, and comprehension. It affects every aspect of daily life and has a significant impact on individuals and their families. We recognize that caring for someone living with dementia can be emotionally overwhelming. That’s why our Adult Day Program and other services are designed to help support individuals living with cognitive impairment and also provide essential support for caregivers.

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.

We offer half-day in-person programs at our Adult Day Program centre with limited spaces, as well as online programming Monday through Friday. Our clients have access to support through the guidance and experience of our ADP social worker, who performs phone wellness checks and provides resources and information to caregivers and clients.

Location

The Adult Day Program Centre is a safe, secure, and professionally supervised environment.

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.”
