40 Years of the Day Program

The Day Program is the core of our services. They initially started from a grassroots initiative of community members wanting to help their neighbours. Today, at the 3 Day Programs, we offer a variety of recreational programs: opportunities to socialize with peers, exercises that strengthen and promote safety, and health monitoring. The Day Programs also provide much needed respite for caregivers to enabling them to focus on their own personal well-being. In 2017, we have provided 12,750 days of care, hundreds of hours of laughter, an innumerable amount of hugs, and we’ve loved every second. Below are just a few of the comments that loved ones of our Day Program clients have shared with us, our goal is to provide a service that keeps our clients happy. We are pleased to hear any feedback they have for us.
