Adult Day Program reopening with limited capacity - September 2020

The Adult Day Program offers a warm and welcoming place for older adults to socialize and take part in meaningful activities.  We promote confidence and independence in aging at home, and wellness and dignity among older adults with physical, cognitive, social, medical and mental health issues through the provision of innovative and stimulating activities, socialization, nutrition and quality care.

The program fosters meaningful connections by focusing on community integration, opportunities for clients to stay active, healthy and connected with people their own age.
