Many people prefer to remain living at home for as long as possible, provided their health care needs are met. However, physical health is not the only concern for vulnerable people. Supporting vibrant mental and social health is key to overall wellbeing. This can include socializing with friends, getting out into the community and enjoying new activities.
Adult day programs provide partial or full-day programming, outside the home, for frail elderly people who are living alone in the community, including those with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. As well, some programs are designed for adults with physical disabilities or those recovering from stroke or brain injury.
Flexible hours make it easy to fit individual needs and schedules. Adult Day Programs are also offered in different languages. Costs vary by program.
