Help make the day special for a person with dementia.
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.
As a volunteer you’ll help staff run the programming and activities that make the program so much fun. You may also help serve refreshments or work one on one with clients who need a little down time.

- Burlington (2180 Itabashi Way, Burlington)
- Oakville (Sheridan Campus, 1430 Trafalgar Road, Oakville)
