The Dearness Adult Day Program offers a wide range of recreational programs and personal care supports in a safe and friendly environment to individuals who have difficulty accessing other social programs in the community, as well as relief for caregivers who may need it.
Dearness Adult Day Program & Wellness Centre
Our Adult Day Program offers a welcoming, client-centered program designed to support and engage individuals who may need assistance with physical frailty, disability or chronic illness. Some of our clients live with caregivers who are working, others with caregivers who need some relief and still others live independently but enjoy an opportunity to socialize and participate in activities such as:
• Specialized Therapies such as Pet, Music and Art
• Exercise Programs and Snoezelen Therapy
• Discussion groups
• Games (Wii)/Baking/Trivia
• Musical Entertainment & Theme Days
• Wi Fi & Computer training
Open Monday to Friday, our program fee includes assistance with personal care, all recreational programming, a hot 3 course lunch as well as transportation to and from the program. Additional services such as a whirlpool bath and foot care can be accessed at our program.
Our program is organized by qualified staff and assisted by our registered volunteers. Funding for the Adult Program is provided under an Accountability Agreement with the South West Local Health Integration Network.
Access to this program is through the Community Care Access Centre.
