We are Expanding!
The Alzheimer Society Lanark Leeds Grenville Overnight Stay Care Program will be expanding to offer additional respite services throughout the week.
Thanks to the support of Ontario Health, and one time funding, our program will serve clients Tuesday-Thursday (in addition to our weekend hours), until March 2023.
What is the Overnight Stay Care Program?
The Overnight Stay Care Program offers three beds per weekend in a safe and comfortable environment. The program promises to be a very enjoyable experience for the participants, while offering respite for caregivers.
Our Overnight respite will provide a mix of social, cognitive, and other related support services. The use of individualized care plans will help participants achieve and maintain their maximum level of functioning.
The program always has two qualified staff members on duty to assist with:
- Personal care,
- Medication assistance,
- Healthy meals and snacks,
- Cognitive, social, and physical stimulation to maintain health and independence and
- Access to gentle exercises as appropriate.
This program will provide overnight, safe respite for the caregiver’s peace of mind. During the day, the person living with dementia will benefit from therapeutic programming, tailored to meet their needs. They will be in a small, secure, homelike setting.
Where and when does the program take place?
Clients attend the Overnight Stay Care Program from Friday at 4:00pm to Monday at 2:30pm for a fee of $110.00.
The Overnight Stay Care Program is located at our Smiths Falls Adult Day Program Site:
Address: Unit 155, 179 Elmsley Street North, Smiths Falls, ON
