Do you know a senior experiencing loneliness, depression, or functional decline as a result of chronic health conditions, particularly after the pandemic lockdowns of the last several years? Do you know of caregivers suffering from high stress due to the pressure of supporting older adults?
Adult Day Program may be able to help.
Adult Day Program (ADP) is a safe, welcoming, age-friendly community, where older adults may spend time with friends and caring program staff, offering respite to families or care partners. ADP focuses on keeping seniors connected and active through therapeutic activities for their bodies and minds.
All programs are developed based on clients’ individual level of functioning and their past interests.
