Managing time can be especially difficult for family caregivers of people with an irreversible dementia.

In recognition of a need for respite care, Providence Healthcare offers a unique Adult Day Program.  This home-like and social program offers flexible hours, caregiver relief and meaningful activity for individuals with a moderate to severe dementia.

We provide family and client-centred service in a warm and caring environment 24 hours a day Monday to Friday, and Saturday during the day.

Located in a designated space within Providence Healthcare, our home-like environment offers:

  • a living and dining area – with chandeliers and a baby grand piano – for singing, dancing, creating and revitalizing old hobbies and skills
  • six individual overnight suites for relaxing – also available during the day or evening – and each is equipped with a computer, flat screen television, comfortable bed and desk
  • two secure outdoor gardens for parties, activities, relaxation or enjoying a game of chess on our life size board
