What is the Overnight Stay Care Program?

Through the Overnight Stay Care Program, we offer 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.

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 will have two qualified staff members on duty at all times 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 secure, small, homelike setting for the weekend.

Where and when does the program take place?

Clients attend the Overnight Stay Care Program from Friday at 4:00 pm to Monday at 2:30 pm 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
