CAH’s Adult Day Program (ADP) is a physical and cognitive activation and socialization program offered in French to seniors in Toronto and Oshawa. It is organized and supervised by professional recreationists in a welcoming, warm and safe environment.
Research confirms that the most important goal for seniors is to stay in their homes as long as possible!
Who needs the ADP?
The ADP was created to help its participants maintain or reach their maximum level of physical and cognitive functioning in order to preserve their autonomy, while offering respite to their caregivers. French-speaking eniors who wish to participate meet with a case manager to assess their needs. Call 416-365-3350, ext. 242, to book an appointment for a free evaluation.
A break for caregivers of seniors!
The ADP provides a valuable respite for families and caregivers caring for their loved ones. (Coming Soon: the CAREGIVERS/FAMILY section of our website)
Cost of the Adult Day Program
The ADP costs $16 per day.
Note that a grant is available, upon proof of income. You can discuss this with the case manager.
