Caring for our Community’s Older Adults and our Caregivers
By attending and participating in our programs, older adults in the Town of Erin and Guelph-Eramosa Township will be provided with the assistance they need to live as happy, healthy, contributors to our vibrant community.
EWCS recognizes that the term “senior” speaks to one specific person and one specific need. EWCS aims to serve the adults who are aging in our community with many faces. Not only do we offer supports for the “senior” person in need of day programming, but also for the newly retired, the young caregiver and the overwhelmed “sandwich” generation.
We offer warm and welcoming spaces for adults to socialize and take part in meaningful activities in Erin/Hillsburgh and Rockwood communities.
Our Adult Day Program (ADP) promotes wellness and dignity for adults with physical, cognitive, social, medical and mental health issues through the provision of activities, socialization, nutrition and quality care; while providing Respite support for the caregivers of older adults. We aim to provide client centered care with a focus on community integration and intergenerational programming.
For active adults aged 55 and over, we offer planned social and recreational programs that allow our rural community opportunities to stay active, healthy and socially connected with people their own age.
For adults in the community looking to form meaningful connections, we offer one to one support from our Manager of Senior Programming to ensure timely assistance and appropriate referrals as well as support groups for a multitude of identified needs.
