Adult Day Program

Adult Day Program


The Day Programs, offered two days a week since 2006, serve frail seniors and seniors with a cognitive impairment.They offer a day full of stimulating physical and mental exercises, games and entertainment, and a nutritional hot meal. Clients are referred through community agencies etc. This program also provides a much needed  respite service for full-time caregivers. Twelve clients are served each day. There is a user fee plus a transportation fee.

Our clients enjoy the variety and change of pace, and caregivers appreciate the quality and reliability of the programs. Caring volunteers are heavily involved in this program, and significant program planning is required.

To register: All referrals must be made through Home & Community Care please contact us for more information or assistance for a referral. 613-829-9777

Luncheon Program

This program is offered on Wednesdays to seniors who may be socially isolated or who are living independently but have care needs. Luncheon begins with welcome/social time followed by a hot lunch and finishes the day with entertainment. A user fee and transportation fee is charged. This program is able to serve a maximum of 20 clients. This is a wonderful program that really develops strong community connections and supports. Some clients have been attending for over 10 years!
