CAH’s Adult Day Program (ADP Toronto) offers physical and cognitive activation and socialization programming in French, five days a week. Professional recreationists ensure a welcoming and safe environment in which clients can enjoy their day. (Note that we also offer an Adult Day Program in Oshawa, three days a week.)
This program, which is partially funded by the Toronto Central LHIN (Ministry of Health), is suitable for people aged 55+ experiencing a decline in physical and/or cognitive autonomy. Eligibility for the program is based on a standardized assessment of functional capacity.
CAH’s ADP provides much-needed respite for caregivers caring for their loved ones!
Who needs the ADP?
The ADP was created to provide respite for caregivers and help seniors spend a fun day engaging in physical and cognitive activities, in good company. Active engagement can often prolong autonomy and prevent premature referral to long term care. Seniors who wish to participate in the ADP in Toronto meet with a case manager to assess their needs. Call 416-365-3350, ext. 242 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A break for caregivers of seniors!
The ADP provides a valuable respite for families and caregivers caring for their loved ones.
Cost of the Adult Day Program
The ADP costs $16 per day. This includes a hot lunch. Note that subsidies are available, upon proof of income.
