Adult Day Respite Program

Our Adult Day Respite Program is designed to support persons living with memory loss and their caregivers. We offered loved ones a much-needed respite from the mental and physical demands of caregiving while participants enjoy social, cognitive and physical activity to enhance their quality of life. 

Over the years, the Adult Day Respite Program has helped many isolated seniors remain, healthy, happy and connected with their community.

When long-term, intensive care management is needed, this program provides senior advocacy-based care management by experienced staff.

We will develop and maintain care plans on a reasonable, fee-for-service basis. There is a fee for this program.
