Our Adult Day Program (also known as “the Club”) is designed to support each person’s individual interests, needs, and abilities.
Club Members are encouraged to be as independent as possible, choosing their level of engagement and participation.
Our exceptional team of highly skilled staff spend time getting to know each Club Member so that they can read each individual’s cues. This care and attention to detail means that they can subtly provide the support Club Members need to have a great day and feel at home.
What to Expect as a Club Member
Club Members can expect to be welcomed into a friendly, safe and relaxed atmosphere. Register for 1 day up to 6 days a week (pending suitability/availability), with flexible arrival and departure times to accommodate each family’s schedule.
Activities help Club Members socialize, engage in the world around them, and try new things.
Club Members may participate in any of the following activities:
- Music sessions with singing, instrument playing and/or music therapy
- Sports games and exercise classes
- Discussion groups and word games
- Art projects such as painting, crafts
- Pet therapy
- Drama-based skits and performances
- Special events and themed days
- Guest speakers and entertainers

Club Members will also be supported in the following ways:

- Foot care services (for an additional fee)
- Secure environment (that doesn’t feel confined)
What to Expect as a Family Caregiver
Family Caregivers can expect a much needed break from caregiving, while their family members enjoy a safe, friendly and fun environment.
Our collaborative approach to care means that you’ll be in regular communication with our staff team regarding your family member’s welfare and wellbeing. We’re here to answer any questions or concerns you might have throughout your dementia journey.
