What is the Adult Day Program?
The purpose of the Adult Day Program is to meet the needs of persons living with dementia (PLWD) who have functional impairments. It is a structured, comprehensive program that provides a variety of health, social, and supports services. Our goal is to assist PLWD to remain in the community, and to engage in activities that are responsive to their physical, intellectual, and emotional capabilities, as well as environmental, and social needs. We aim to enhance participants’ self-esteem and to provide them with a feeling of companionship and security. All the while, the Adult Day Program provides respite for the caregiver.
