These day care centers provide a few hours of respite for the caregivers and their families, while the afflicted person can benefit from cognitive and social stimulation activities.

In each day care center, the clientele can count on professionals and qualified volunteers that have the required experience to meet the specific needs of the participants and to reassure their families.

Programs and services

We want to stress the importance of activities that will allow people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease (or other major neurocognitive disorders) and their caregivers to maintain a quality of life. Caregivers can be a spouse, an adult child, a relative or a friend.
