A Program Designed For You
Join us for a choice of enjoyable activities – all specially adapted for individuals with cognitive impairments who are unable to attend traditional community and social programs. Whether you enjoy crafts, gardening, pets, inter-generational activities, music, meal preparation, exercise, group discussion, games, projects, outings, or special events and parties – we'll design a program to suit you.
Our Day Program team develops a care plan in consultation with each participant and family. Daily journals are sent home each visit to share activities and news.
Our one to four staff to participant ratio enables us to assist with care needs and personal care such as assistance with feeding, incontinence care and one or two person transfers.
- Recreational and social activities on a group and/or individual basis
- Qualified staff providing supervision and care in a safe and comfortable environment
- Assistance with daily living tasks as required
- A nutritious lunch and snacks
Program and Activities

Cognitive: Programs that include discussion, thinking and learning activities.
Music: Programs that include a significant musical component, including activities facilitated by a Music Therapist.
Physical: Programs that get us moving. Exercises are done daily.
Creative: Programs that provide an opportunity for participants to express themselves through the arts.
