Our Adult Day Programs (ADPs) provide social, recreational and therapeutic activities for seniors, individuals with a disability, Alzheimer's disease or other dementia in a safe and supervised environment. Activities are designed to be accessible to each participant by focusing on their abilities, not their disabilities. Activities could include exercise classes, cards and games, art and crafts, music and cooking. Program runs Monday to Friday 9am-3pm. Volunteers come in during a planned timeslot to assist with the programs and visit with the clients.
