Dementia Adult Day Program

⚠ Adult Day Programs are closed until further notice
In an effort to encourage social distancing and maintain the safety of both our staff and clients, we have closed all of our Adult Day Program locations until further notice

Our Adult Day Program for people living with dementia (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
  • Baking
  • Discussion groups and word games
  • Art projects such as painting, crafts
  • Gardening
  • Pet therapy
  • Drama-based skits and performances
  • Special events and themed days
  • Guest speakers and entertainers
  • Relaxation or quiet time
  • Coffee and conversation
  • Applied social research projects through the Center for Elder Research at Sheridan

Club Members will also be supported in the following ways:

  • Assistance with eating, walking, toileting and taking medications (no injections)
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • 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.

Being a caregiver can be tough, so don’t forget about yourself. Our Caregiver Education and Caregiver Support Groups can connect you to the services you need to feel supported, capable, and informed.
